Peppermint Candy is a contemporary take on the swing genre, guiding listeners through the story of swing from the classic (think Ella, Billie and Duke), to contemporary outfits such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and The Correspondents. Accompanying all this will be the latest news from gigs, festivals and events across the country, interspersed with unusual swing lingo and the day-to-day trends that swing has influenced from games, dance, food and fashion.In the first show they talk about L.A. Noire, a new computer game about a police detective in Los Angeles in 1947 which has music from that era.
They discuss Fletcher Hendersons impact on swing music.You'll hear Minnie the Moocher by Cab Calloway, Bloodshot Eyes by Wynonie Harris. At the Swing Cats Ball by Louis Jordan.
Broken Hearts give a update of upcoming U.K. events.
Hopefully the show will appear on the web for listening.
