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

Now here's a technical question- is there any way of converting LP to digital files without advanced equipment?

Sure. All you really have to do is get some cables and connect your stereo system to the Line In jack of your sound card. Go to Radio Shack and they will be able to point out the specific cables you will need. If your stereo system has a "line out" or "tape out" jack, I would recommend using that to connect to the sound card as it will be quieter than the speaker jacks. You will need to get a software program that will enable you to record .wav files - and my guess is you can probably find several for little money or for free by doing a search at http://tucows.com In fact, last time I looked, there were several software programs there specifically designed for recording LPs to one's hard drive. Or, if this is something you might want to do on a regular basis, I would consider getting DC-art Go to: http://diamondcut.com Once you have recorded the music to .wav files, you will then need a software program to convert them to whatever format you wish - i.e. mp3, Real Audio, Quicktime, CD-R etc.
