Mostly Big Bands
FRIDAY NIGHTS AT 7

Big band music, from early jazz age to modern swing, hosted by KEDM's Richard Harrison. Prior to WW II, swing bands played the music of the day, were found at dance halls, hotels, night clubs, even movie theaters. Post-War big bands changed with the times, soon were found in record studios, and on the concert stage. Such band music has become more jazz than dance music.
