The Return of Boss Larry and Big Blue Swing

I’m back! After a break, I’m ready to dive back into sharing my love of all things dieselpunk.
I wanted to turn everyone on to an interesting online streaming station that I’ve found: “Big Blue”.

According to their web site, “Big Blue is a non-profit Internet Radio Station featuring the best swing and blues music available. Our selections give you the feeling of being right back at that weekend exchange. Whether you’re doing Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Blues, or East Coast/West Coast Swing, we think you’ll find what you’re looking for here at Big Blue”
Admittedly, the station is a little odd. For reasons that aren’t quite clear, the station will at times randomly play a contemporary gospel song. Thankfully, they don’t overkill in this for these songs aren’t played back to back. Moreover, I find these gospel songs often to be a lot of fun. They tend to remind me of the fantastic church scene with James Brown from the movie Blues Brothers.

Therefore, if you don’t mind occasional gospel music with your big band, you might enjoy Big Blue
