"The Swingin' Years"

A musical expression called "Rock n' Roll" was just developing in 1956 when Chuck Cecil started a radio show, calling it "Swingin' Years." The idea was to perpetuate the memory of swing music by Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, The Dorseys, Artie Shaw, Guy Lombardo, Count Basie... original records 1935 to 1955. 49 years later, Cecil is still spinning yarns and the 78 r.p.m. records.

The "Swingin' Years" is heard each Saturday and Sunday morning, from 6am to 9am on KJAZZ 88.1 FM. The Swingn' Years is produced in the home of Edna and Chuck Cecil.
