Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Episode 12: Sweet Harmonies, Part One

The Louvin Brothers
This week on the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, I covered vocal harmonies. Given the span of the subject, I believe I'll spend a few episodes vamping on this theme:

The Mills Brothers - Tiger Rag
Norman & Nancy Blake - The Sunny Side of Life
Bill Monroe and Doc Watson - What Would You Give in Exchange for Your Soul?
The Louvin Brothers - Broadminded
Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan - Baby, It's Cold Outside
The 5 Jones Boys - Mr. Ghost Goes to Town
Matt Snell - Toothy Grin

That's right, I played myself last night. I haven't done so on the show yet, but the theme was pretty close to home this time. With the exception of myself (and the Blakes, although they were playing an old-time style), most of the material was of an older vintage. As the series progresses I'll get into more modern material...

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Tuesdays 9:00-9:30 on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, online at http://www.trentradio.ca/stream.htm.
