My mother always plays the 40s channel in the car. I like the music. If you want some good stuff from the 40s and 50s believe it or not Seth McFarlane has some really good albums where he sings standards. He’s got a wonderful voice.

My late father got his start in broadcasting as a radio DJ after WWII (he went on to TV by 1951). He had hundreds of 78s, and we grew up with an appreciation for the music of that era. My sister - an aspiring clarinetist - loved Benny Goodman, and had the chance to meet him when she was in high school. She was so starstruck she couldn't speak. Her friend had to say, "Mr. Goodman this is Mary and she's one of your biggest fans."

You know Pookie, seems to me a lot of white folks used to rip off colored folk's songs.... Sorta the reverse of today's rap music....

I am too old to care if I am called racist somehow by that surmise... but sure seems that way. Just didn't know so many hits had original artists from the black community. Thanks for sharing...

A lot of the early black artists did get a raw deal in many ways...especially monetarily. The white cover versions usually got more airplay & higher positions on the charts. I can't totally equate it to today's rap music in that (I don't think) the white rappers are doing many of the black rappers' songs...

Now, to go back to see if I have a few more comments/videos...
