Centuries of Sound on Cambridge 105 Radio – Episode 41 (1932)

Time: 6pm GMT, Sunday 23rd January 2022
Place: Cambridge 105 Radio

Another trip back in time, with original sounds from the year 1932, curated by James Errington. Aside from jazz we have foundational blues and roots recordings, highlights from Hollywood and Broadway, and an interview with White Town’s Jyoti Mishra about Al Bowlly, who he sampled on his 1997 number one hit Your Woman.

You can listen to the show on 105fm in Cambridge, on DAB digital across South Cambridgeshire, on the Cambridge 105 website here, or on any good radio apps, or (as the show has already gone out and it is too late to do any of these things) you can play the whole extended version (and this is a particularly extended one) on this handy mixcloud player.

Another adventure into the history of recorded music with James Errington, this time joined by veteran BBC presenter & producer Tony Barnfield to listen to and talk about the sounds of 1908, right at the heart of the era when music hall and vaudeville dominated music on either side of the Atlantic.

This section of the mix is a sound collage of original broadcasts and recordings from 1940. The spoken word sections largely concern the war, the music is mainly stereo recordings made by Leopold Stokowski for the Disney movie Fantasia. This is a departure from the largely music-centric format you may be used to, I hope it is of interest.
