  7. RIP Harry Harrison

    You've forgotten Scott Muni and Herb Oscar Anderson (HOA). They're both gone as well. I think Harrison replaced HOA.
  8. If you'll allow for a rare bit of self promotion, my show ("The Jazz Train"), which started with fellow board member "Salvatore Massaro" as co-host back in 1987, begins its 28th year today (Tuesday, January 21) on radio station WMBR in Cambridge, Massachusetts. You're invited to join me today for music recorded on this date in years past. If you're in the greater Boston area, you can listen live at 88.1 fm from 4:00 to 5:30 pm eastern standard time. The show is also streamed live to the web from http://www.wmbr.org/ at the same time (2100 to 2230 GMT). It should also be archived for a couple of weeks thereafter at the station's website.
  9. "The Jazz Train" starts year 28

    Still at it. The Jazz Train starts year 34 today. Today's program is music recorded on January 21 (today) between 1927 (Fletcher Henderson) and 1958 (Jimmy Giuffre). Thanks to board member Salvatore Massaro who was there as my co-host in the beginning (1987) and to Stereojack who brought me in and served as my initial engineer. The show is aired and streamed live (details at top of thread) and should be available for a couple of weeks thereafter at the station's archive at https://www.wmbr.org

  11. Savoy label question

    Chuck is right about gospel and Savoy. Some of the biggest sellers in the R&B genre for Savoy were as follows, with rankings within each year from the "Hot Chart" compiled by Big Al Pavlow in his "The R & B Book. A Disc-History of Rhythm & Blues." Based on this information, their biggest sellers in the pop field were likely Johnny Otis, Paul Williams, Varetta Dillard, and Nappy Brown. 1948: Hal Singer.
