The Palace of Nostalgia
Feasting in The Palace: an hour full of musical delicacies. Such as: Slim Gaillard about Potato Chips, Maria Dieke with The Skymasters about chocolat, Edmundo Ross with ’The coffee song’ and Robert Mitchum in ‘Coconut Water’.
From England ’the essence of eccentricity’: theatre star Nellie Wallace, cooling by Lee Konitz with ‘Ice cream Konitz’, Miles Davis with ’Tasty pudding’, Pete Seeger singing about beans with beacon and gravy, Fats Waller grumbles about a lot of meat in the pan, but no potatoes.
Furthermore: how a Greek fruit seller inspired to write the song ‘Yes, we have no bananas’, Mel Torme, Matt Dennis, Xavier Cugat, Drs P.
And as ultimate refreshment: ‘Banana split’ by the McGuire Sisters.Produced & presented by:
