Having been a great fan of all jazz era music since my teens, I had a strong desire to present ‘my kind of music’ on-air, and from 1992 to 1995 hosted “Gee Dad! It’s A Wurlitzer”, a weekly hour of theatre pipe organ on KPCC-FM, Pasadena, California. On moving to Spain, I pitched a local British station with both a 1925-1965 swing era show and a theatre organ programme and was on-air for some 3 years. I now concentrate on my Hot Pipes podcasts and broadcasts, bringing a new audience to this great and very varied musical art-form, which is not just about a ballroom in Blackpool!

Having lived through the 1930’s and 40’s I am very familiar with all the music and entertainment that was on the BBC and on the old 78rpm records at that time. I spent my later childhood years enduring all the bombing raids that took place on Portsmouth and found some comfort in listening to the radio. I pursued a career with the Ministry of Defence and was finally posted to Bath where I retired. Wanting something positive to do in my retirement I joined Bath Hospital Radio and was with them for 19 years, much of which was as Programme Director. I look forward to producing many programmes for the 1940’s UK Radio Station..Contact

While growing up Jay always wanted to have his own Dance Band. His father introduced him to this music by dragging him off to the famous Hub Ballroom in Edelstein, Illinois hearing bands as Guy Lombardo, Tiny Hill, Russ Morgan and Horace Heidt & his Musical Knights.   After high school Jay fronted a Big Band.  But Rock & Roll hit and the big band was put aside for a career in radio and television. Jay first heard about The UK 1940s Radio Station on the internet as he was traveling. Jay enjoyed hearing the level of original archive broadcast programs from the 1940s. Jay offered his expertise to help The UK 1940s Radio Station’s goal to promote the music in the UK and Statesid

Though I have spent over 40 years teaching subjects such as mathematics, statistics and philosophy, I am a long-time devotee of trad jazz and swing from the 20s and 30s. And I have wanted to have my own radio show ever since listening to the pirate stations back in the 1960s. So it's great to be part of the UK 1940s Radio Station team. I hope you enjoy listening to my 'Roaring Twenties' and 'Year of Jazz' shows as much as I enjoy making them.

My interest in big bands and swing began by listening, as a child, to a local radio station that played all the best of the 40s. I've been a record collector since then and always wanted to do a radio show. However, my career in radio and television broadcasting was in engineering, and it was not until my retirement that I finally settled into a radio show.
The Swing Era is an entertaining and informative musical program fed by the enormous recorded legacy that the Swing Era bands and artists left us. Our main focus is on the period from 1930 thru the 40s, a span of time wide enough to present the bigger picture of this exciting musical era. The Swing Era has been broadcast in Central Florida for over ten years, and draws on my own collection of big band, swing era jazz and broadcast recordings of over 50,000 selections. My personal knowledge, backed by an extensive library of discographical and historical material provide the basis for the program’s annotation. There you have the Swing Era story. The rest is in the listening. Hope it is enjoyable

Hello, I'm Guy Roles and I present 'My Pick Of The Forties' on The UK 1940's Radio Station. I'm a collector of 78 rpm records and have a big collection of 1930's and 1940's dance band and swing 78s. I have played the music at The Severn Valley Railway 1940's weekends for the past 10 years. I'm the proud owner of a beautiful 1939 Morris 12 which is great fun to drive to 1940's events. My show 'My pick of the forties' is not about one particular kind of music from the 1930's and 40's but it reflects my personal taste of the great music from that era. My 40's favourites include Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Geraldo, Carroll Gibbons, The Andrews Sisters, Anita O'Day, Al Jolson and many more. I'm looking forward to playing you 'my pick of the forties' Thanks for listening.

Welcome to the Anderson Shelter Show with me Bryan Warnett, the only show from an Air Raid Shelter somewhere in deepest darkest West Sussex in Southern England. Whether you want to dance Lindy Hop, Swing, Jive, Balboa or Tap, we bring you the best dance tunes from the 1920's through to the 1940's and even the odd one from 1950's, that are still lighting up the dance floors throughout the world. A keen dancer myself, I believe that the music will never die as long as we reach out to the younger generations and what better way to do that than to whirl them across the floor!.
