The Palace of Nostalgia
Jazz, blues and nostalgia, by Sjaak Roodenburg.
In this episode: a Wonder on Wheels. We’ll feature a beautiful recording of the Metropole Orkest in ‘Traffic Boom’ by Roger Roger while cruising through Route 66.
We’ll also listen to ‘motorway suffering’ like the ‘V-8 Blues’, the ‘Truck Driver’s Blues’, Hank Williams with his ‘Lost Highway’, a hitchhiking Frank Sinatra, and reflections when seeing a red Renault.
We’ll listen to the humorous story of a man behind the wheel who ended up with seven beautiful women in the backseat who want to woo a guy named Fred, who is also sitting in the backseat; yet, the women all ignore the driver. We’ll also feature a race between a Cadillac and a Rambler Nash.
Finally, we’ll listen to Woody Guthrie, Johnny Hartman, Pearl Bailey, June Christy, and Artie Shaw.Produced & presented by:
