Those funny little silver discs

Been going through piles of cds of vintage music recordings - there is something ironic about listening to 78s in CD format - although cd may soon also go the way of the dodo in favor of mp3 or whatever is the technology flavour of the moment...

Some CD recommendations (from cds I borrowed from the San Jose MLK Library):

Yes sir, that's my baby - The Golden Years of Tin Pan Alley (MLK SJ Library)
Frances Langford - Someone to Watch Over Me (MLK SJ Library)
The 1930s - the Singers (MLK SJ Library)
Mildred Bailey - The Rocking Chair Lady (1931-1950) (MLK SJ Library)
Eddie Condon - Dixieland All Stars (MLK SJ Library)
When I'm Calling You - Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy (MLK SJ Library)

Agog over Hagaga.org

Where else can you get vintage reefer jazz, a cure for your seasonal affective disorder and some Roy Smeck?

Update: Hagaga is currently moving, so not all the sets are currently available - satify yourself for now with hot rods, cats and girls... whoo hoo!

Get your podcasts here in mp3 format!
