Norman Baker - Ain't Nothin but the Blues
Norman Baker - Ain't Nothin' But the Blues
Norman gets out the records (yes, vinyl!)for an eclectic mix of jazz, blues, swing, country and a lot more besides, from the 1920s to the present day, with the emphasis on the laid back. Norman's show is live on Sunday evenings from 7pm to 9pm, and repeated on Thursdays from 9pm to 11pm.
Don't miss the regular features: The Terrible Track Of The Week, Bob's Seaside B Side, the Theme Tune Of The Week, The Banned Plays On - each week we play a track originally banned by the BBC - and Take Two, when I play two very different versions of the same song.
Norman says: "In my shows, I like to play records, and I do mean records, that are a little bit offbeat, such as obscure versions of well-known songs, rare B sides by famous artists, tracks that spring a surprise. You'll hear everything from 1920s jazz, 1930s dance bands, 1940s country, and 1950s blues through, (occasionally!) to the latest CD. Nowhere else will you hear Jelly Roll Morton, Ken "Snakehips" Johnson, Cab Calloway, Jack Hylton, Big Bill Broonzy, Georgie Fame, Eartha Kitt, Manfred Mann, Jamie Cullum and Hank Williams on the same programme!
"I like the fact that Seahaven FM is genuinely local, and I have a good chance of knowing those who call or email in to the programme. And it's great to be able to share my records with others. Music has always been very important to me."
