We take a stroll along Blue Sky Avenue with Orville Knapp and dance to the bands of Claude Hopkins, Fletcher Henderson, Jimmie Lunceford, and Chick Webb. Stirring vocals from Ethel Waters, Bing Crosby, and more. Join us for an hour of musical delights straight from the late summer of 1934 on this Shellac Stack.
