Dear List,

Here's a question about a band which I can find no information about, anywhere. I've heard a few recordings by a band called the "Dixie Two-Steppers" on Radio Dismuke and like them a lot. The recordings sound like possible transcriptions of a mid-20's radio program, almost certainly for dancing. They aren't the best group, but nevertheless, thier recordings have a certain energy and verve about them. The recordings are almost always medleys consisting of two songs from then recent movies or revues, such as one especially nice medley of "Am I Blue?" and "Liza" from "Showgirl". They are announced clearly at the beginning and end of each number. Does anyone know about this great but little-known band? One possibility is that "Dixie Two-Steppers" may be a recording pseudonym used by a little-known dance orchestra.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good weekend,
Henry

There's some Sunny Meadows programs featuring Ray Miller at the redhotjazz site. You even get to hear Ray Miller chatting with the radio announcer. The only vocalist who is introduced is Mary Williams; she's a blues singer.

These line recordings are available at the Redhotjazz site under "Ray Miller and his Orchestra" directly following the alphabetic list of songs.
