(1) mainstream AM radio ("Your Hit Parade" as so many formats were entitled back then), (2) the dance and concert halls where the big bands played, or soloists like Crosby sang & (3) the Armed Forces USO's & canteens.

Symbols: (v) and (I) stand for vocal (present in recording) and Instrumental (all instrumental) respectively. Noted vocalists or instrumental soloists mentioned made an out-sized contribution to the recording.

Thanks a lot for the great list. I love jazz songs, and its nice to get some good ideas for new songs to look up.

Those with Spotify will find 325 Swing Era selections under Christopher B. Sommers. I suggest selecting Spotify's "extreme" sound setting providing that you are a Premium Spotify subscriber and have a really good audio system connected to your computer or smartphone.

You can download them on Youtube. Just copy and paste the url to a youtube to mp3 downloader and then it will appear in your iTunes, or whatever music library u have, then you can sync with your phone:)

These tunes saved my sanity in the 1970s in San Francisco, when radio station KMPX played them, when rock music was "mellow", meaning -- not rock music, and really bad. I am downloading these songs now, so I can re-create KMPX for myself, using my electronic dee-jay program. I'm more than halfway through this list, alphabetically, at "On The Sunny Side Of The Street, by Tommy Dorsey Band".
