Centuries of Sound on Cambridge 105 Radio – Episode 42 (1933)

Time: 6pm GMT, Sunday 27th February 2022
Place: Cambridge 105 Radio

Another trip into the archives with James Errington, this time to 1933. It’s the worst year of the great depression, terrible things are afoot in Europe, but with the first golden age of Hollywood, all America seems to want to do is celebrate. It’s an odd moment, then, but one with some fantastic music.

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 you can play the whole extended version on this handy mixcloud player.
