Tuesday on The AIR we deliver a brand-new episode of The Swing Shift. In order to hear this new hour of Suh-Wing, you simply have to move your cursor over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and listen to that copascetic little embedded radio player at the top of the right column of this blog.
First off, at 1 PM we have a replay of the pride episode of MIRRORBALL, wherein Mel Larch makes long to dance the inclusive Disco way for one full hour! Then at 2 PM an encore of Steven Allen Adams’ NOISE BRIGADE makes you want to jump in the mosh pit, the Ska/Punk way for the next hour.
At 3 PM a new hour of The Swing Shift drives home the dance theme by presenting a mixtape show where we shut up and dance…mostly. I do introduce the show, and Eddie Nichols sings one line at the end of the Royal Crown Revue tune, but otherwise the show is all instrumental. Check out this powerful playlist…
