Swing Time with Mike Stokes
Every Wednesday from 6 to 8pm
Despite what many people think, Big Band music is not swing music, but swing music can be big band. Swing music, like the term “swing,” can be a rather general term. It can refer to swing jazz music which was the style of American music most popular in the 1930s and early 1940s. Other than swing jazz, the term “swing music” can also refer to any style of music that is very common to swing dance to.
With “Swing Time”, host Mike Stokes will focus on the American Songbook including music of the Big Band era and American standards. Listen to “Swing Time” every Wednesday from 6 to 8pm on WNTI-The Sound of Centenary
