Podcast 21: Skiffle to Clooney and Dietrich
A third of the show is dedicated to Skiffle. Chas McDevitt and Nancy Whisky begin proceedings. Chas does some whistling during the song and Nancy wasn’t too happy about it apparently. Both artists were Glasgow born. Followed by The Vipers and then four from the ‘master’ of skiffle and so much more, Lonnie Donegan. In amongst that Morris and Mitch explain Skiffle in ‘What is a Skiffler?’ Also Hal McIntyre, Les Brown Orch (featuring Doris Day,) Favorites the McCravey Bros and Fats Waller. Bet they never thought they’d share the bill! Rosemary Clooney teams up with Marlene Dietrich for the wonderful ‘Too old to cut the mustard anymore.’ I like Rosemary alot but she is upstaged in this one. Red McKenzie and Tiny Bradshaw sees us out. Marvellous.
