ENTERCOM Adult Standards KEZW-A (STUDIO 1430)/DENVER is giving listeners a chance to purchase "SING AND SWING, VOLUME 1," a collection of 100 Big Band songs taken from various live ARMED FORCES RADIO programs.
STUDIO 1430 is offering an online sale of an 8 GIG iPOD NANO pre-loaded with live Big Band recordings that were never sold in stores or played on AMERICAN radio. The compilation was produced by the GLENN MILLER ARCHIVE at the UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, and features performances by artists such as GLENN MILLER, SINATRA, TOMMY DORSEY, BENNY GOODMAN, and other great talent from that era.
According to KEZW-A PD RICK CRANDALL, "As AMERICA's #1 Big Band station, we feel strongly about introducing new generations to the great songs of the era. We are so proud to be sponsors of this very special iPOD collection."
AMERICAN MUSIC RESEARCH CENTER board member and producer of the collection DENNIS SPRAGUE added, "The GLENN MILLER ARCHIVE and I are very pleased to join with ENTERCOM/DENVER in presenting this special collection. Not only does it benefit the AMERICAN MUSIC RESEARCH CENTER at the UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, but also fans of big band music who have never heard these songs."
