Swing Records

chosen and presented by (3) Leonard Feather
For over a year Leonard Feather, who has devised and is to compere this programme, has been contributing 'Tempo di Jazz' to the Radio Times. He is only twenty-two and speaks five languages. He used to be in the film business-scenario writing-and has worked on film papers in Germany and France. In the last eighteen months he has crossed the Atlantic eight times, and in these journeys from England to New York, Chicago, and back he has actually travelled 25,000 miles in the interests of jazz. He once broadcast in New York, being dragged on in the middle of an amateur show and expected to do something.
In his broadcast today he is going to give some examples of 'Soft Swing' and he will try and prove that Swing music has not necessarily got to be fast or loud. Among those who will be heard on records are those great swingers Red Norvo, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, and Louis Armstrong with their orchestras. Mildred Bailey will be heard, too, singing with Red Norvo's band.
Listeners will remember that last autumn Leonard Feather devised and compered three programmes in the series 'Evergreens of Jazz'. He is trying to make Swing Music appeal to people who have not as yet expressed any interest in it, and he will put on all sorts of records to this end.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
