Jim Stone, who lives in DeWitt MI, has a show on WLNZ, 89.7FM which also streams every Saturday at 7pm with a repeat on Sunday at noon. And on WHJZDB.NET every Sunday at 6pm and Thursday at 9pm. Listeners can go to each station’s website for links to listen. However WHJZ’s direct link is http:whjzdb.net:8002/stream/2/ His show is called Big Band Swing and there is always a link at the station’s website to listen.

“What makes Big Band music so timeless? It seems the music and the songs have held up over several generations”

Jim: You are absolutely right. The pop tunes of today are here now but in twenty years where will they be?   The music of the 30s and 40s will be around forever. I get new CD’s in every day by new singers and bands and what are they recording? The standards because that music is timeless!
