Agree Bob with a tip of the stetson to Gene Autry! Do you see where James Arness just died. He was great and he scared my pants off as "The Thing."

Yes . It was on the news. Used to watch Gunsmoke all the time. Kitty (Amanda Blake ) lived in my hometown Phoenix.

Hi MissJo

Welcome to the forum. I think you are going to feel right at home here. I've already mentioned you to a member friend of mine that I think you will find you have a lot in common with. His name is Ian House. I think he is actually reincarnated from the 1920's. biggrin.gif He has a Facebook link that you might check out. American Yesteryear I also viewed your UTube video. Pretty nice. Do you by any chance have a Facebook account or a website?

How quaintly old-fashioned Bob! biggrin.gif I've loaded the whole lot onto a USB memory stick the size of my little finger (and I could have used a MemoryStick card the size of a postage stamp). Wouldn't Al have been amazed?

Thanks for the thanks for posting the links, "it was really no trouble at all" - now which one does that come from? - I've forgotten.

Limden


I just might buy a memory stick and do the same for an additional backup. I made the disks so I can play them on the stereo or in the car. I'm also sharing my Al Bowlly folder on the home network so it's available wireless on my Internet radio. So you see I'm not to old fashioned and behind the times. biggrin.gif

Hi Limden

Well it's been a long haul but the Al Bowlly project has come to an end, but well worth all the time and effort. I just finished burning the whole collection, all 1185 tracks to disks in the Mp3 format. Filled up five disks. Listening to them as I type this post. They sure sound great. I would like to thank Randy for making them available. Limden for taking the time to post the download links every week. Also Don Roseman for the click-able
index for Randy's collection.

Royal Caribbean Cruise has been airing a commercial featuring the song "It's Winter Again". Does anyone know the name of the artist in that commercial? I found two versions on You Tube - one by Hal Kemp and the other by Isham Jones, but these are not the versions used in the commercial. It seems the song dates back to 1932. It's so nice to hear music from the Radio Dismuke era on commercial TV once in a while. It makes me sit up and take notice whenever it comes on. Love it!


Hi Flapper

It sure sounds like the Hal Kemp orchestra with the vocalist Skinny Ennis to me. Here is the full song. Give it a listen. It's Winter Again Also check your email.

Yes, Jack Hylton is certainly well covered by Pete Faint's website and we mustn't forget the Lee Morse Songbook compiled by Ian House (where's he gone? I miss him!). It is of course possible to collect near-total collections of certain artists by searching on Jazz-on-line: example Valaida Snow (and doesn't she become wearing after listening to more than a few at a time!). It would still be nice to think of someone worthy of the Randy Skretvedt treatment though.

Returning to Bowlly, here's Volume 5 .

Limden


Hi Limden

Ian House is still around and doing well. You can hook up with him on Facebook. Facebook Ian also owns American Yesteryear at this link. American Yesteryear Why don't you befriend him. I'm sure he would be happy to hear from you. Also here is my page on facebook. Facebook I don't say to much but it is a good site to stay in touch with everyone.

Actually Bob I believe there are five more to go because Randy said, a while back, that he would re-do Volume 1 to bring it into line with the very latest research on Bowlly's early recording history. Then I suggest the whole enterprise needs an index.

After that, Randy's talent for assembling ancient recordings can't be allowed fall idle! Which band or artist would we like him to tackle next?

Someone over on the Yahoo Al Bowlly site proposed Sam Browne but perhaps it's unreasonable to suggest another UK singer though he did have a fine voice and made even more recordings than Al. Something of Al's diversity might be lacking too. It's variety that's needed so many great artists of the period can become a bit wearisome if their recordings are played one after another. We need a brilliant idea and I don't have one!

Limden


Don't have any ideas at this time but have been thinking about it. You might already know about this site. Jack Hylton All in MP3 format. If you are looking for variety there are many artists that recorded with Jack's band. Everything he ever recorded is available for download.

Thanks Limden. Only four more to go and you are going to be out of a job. Job well done. Things are going to really slow down around here then, unless someone sets a fire under this forum and gets it moving again. Put on your thinking caps and see if anyone comes up with any ideas.

Volume 26 .

Halfway there and time for a re-think. I'm perfectly happy to post these weekly reminders of Randy's latest releases, it's really no trouble at all, but is Bob the only Dismuker to find them helpful? I could just send him a PM each time instead of making this thread longer and longer. Anyone who would like me to continue with the present routine please post to let me know.

Limden


Hi Limden

Well I hope I'm not the only one to find them helpful. I have almost forgotten a few times and if not for the email notice from your post I might have missed out on some of them. We are half way there and I want the complete set. I hope you continue, but if not a PM would be nice. Again thanks for keeping this thread alive.

Randy miscalculated slightly and Volume 42 won't quite fit on to an audio CD. So he has reconfigured a Volume42new which does fit and as a bonus he's released Volume 41 a week early.

Limden


Thanks for the heads-up Limden.

Must be old homecoming week at Dismuke's. I haven't been around much either, but I do drop in and add my two cents worth from time to time. Good to see you are still kicking along there Ian. I too still listen to Radio Dismuke all the time on my wireless internet radio that I bought last year. It's a lot easier on my back, listening while laying on the couch, then sitting in front of the computer. wink.gif And as far as my guitar playing is coming along Flapper. Not as well as I'd like it to be. The old fingers and hands just don't work like they used to. Don't think I'll be doing any concerts. laugh.gif Good to here from you both. Don't be strangers.

Hi Guys!

Thoroughly enjoying your Record Collector's Party today. The record selections are great as usual and I really liked the live accordion numbers by Matt. Never hear the accordion played anymore, unfortunately. I always enjoyed it and still do, although it is now considered out of vogue in the current scheme of things. Who are "they" to tell us what we are supposed to like???

Thanks for all you do to promote real music. I don't post much on the forum any more, but am still a loyal listener of Radio Dismuke and the music we love.

Best wishes.


Hey Flapper. Good to see you coming out of hibernation after your long winters nap. biggrin.gif

Anyway here's Volume 48

I'm sure Randy knows exactly what he's doing but I'm a bit puzzled why, after putting in so much effort, he is taking down each volume after the relatively short time of a couple of weeks. There must be a reason but it's escaping me. The whole enterprise merits archiving.

Limden


Thanks. Got the download. Maybe it's a problem of having enough storage space for all fifty volumes on his web site.

I'm looking for radio stations that stream the old radio shows on internet radio. I already have the Yesterdays, Old Time Radio and HorrorTheater stations. Would like to find some stations that play the old private eye and mystery shows and the like. Thanks for all replies and leads.
