Monday, 7/22/2024,10pm - Annals of Jazz with Richard Hadlock

1943: The Lost Year, Part 2 (Originally Aired 04/21/2013).
If you tuned in last week, you heard Part One of 1943 – The Lost Year, and how the ban established by James Petrillo of the American Federation of Musicians Union against the recording companies of the time impacted jazz music and its artists of the time. In this episode Richard Hadlock takes us to Europe and shows us how much jazz musicians lost because of WWII and the German Nazi occupation which prohibited swing music from being played and danced to.
