Shellac Stack No. 63

Shellac Stack No. 63

Shellac Stack No. 63 spans nearly 50 years, from Bert Williams in 1906 to George¬†Girard in 1953. We salute the late Kitty Kallen and look forward to Valentine’s Day. Today’s stack includes discs by blues pianist Mike Jackson, bandleaders Bennie Moten, Paul Whiteman, Eddy Duchin, and others. With Iowa on the nation’s mind this past week, we¬†also listen to the American Legion Official Band, direct from Sioux City, Iowa.
