Aside from my passion for local music and all kinds of other styles of music, I have a deep love for Swing. That’s why I host and produce The Swing Shift every Tuesday on The AIR.
Several times lately, The Swing Shift has been bumped for all-day marathons of Radio Free Charleston. Today I decided to turn the tables and run a full day of The Swing Shift. From 7 AM to 1 AM you can listen to The AIR and feel the power of the last century worth of great swing tunes.
You’ll hear Benny Goodman, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Duke Ellington, Royal Crown Revue, Ella Fitzgerald, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Stan Kenton, The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Louis Prima, Cab Calloway and many more.
If you love Swing Music, tune in and enjoy the day. If you hate Swing Music, tune in and be converted to the ways of the down beat.
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing, you know.
