Pledge Drive Special Tonight: Still Swingin' At 100!

Join me tonight for the SSS Spring Pledge Drive Special:  Still Swingin' At 100!  All the songs featured tonight were recorded in the Swing Era of the 1930's and '40's, but they were originally written at least a hundred years ago.  These tunes were first written or published 10, 15, 20, 25 or even 30 years before their Swing Era versions, so they were "Golden Oldies" even in the '30's. Tune in, enjoy some music, and make a pledge to help WEVL reach its Spring Pledge Drive goal!
