1940 - 1949

The War years, Swing music with Glenn Miller & Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn plus lots lots more. 


The music & videos of the 40s are a really popular part of my Vintage DJ set 


Although this is the 40s page, two significant tracks/artists from the 30s are included

 

In The Mood released in 1939, became the Iconic Big Band track in the 40s

Whilst Al Jolson once again became a major star with the 1946 film ’The Jolson Story'

Chatting with a friend about the dipping of the cranes at Sir Winston Churchill's funeral inspired me to put this montage together - the track is 'Losing You by Dusty Springfield, it seems appropriate because of the title plus it was in the charts when we lost the great man - Thanks for the idea Pete
