Jazz Music Program (1961-1970)

Eddie Safranski

The US Navy and Navy Reserve welcome you aboard to hear the best in all kinds of jazz. Created as a program to encourage navy recruits during the 1960s, The Navy Swings features both famous and up-and-coming jazz artists of the era. Included in this list of great musicians we have Joe Williams, Phil Crosby (Bing's grandson), Eddie Safranski and his Orchestra, Don Cherry, Al Caiola, Dick Stabile, Marty Napoleon and the boys, and Fran Warren. So dawn on those navy trousers and get that snapping finger warmed up because the navy is ready to swing!

For more well-done military-sponsored music programs, see also the Air Force recruitment show, A Serenade in Blue. Additional military music programs include: Lets Go To Town, Guard Sessions, Battle Stations, Music America Loves Best, Theater of Hits, Join the Navy, and US Navy Shows. See also: Voice of the Army.

For more jazz broadcasts, see also: Charlie and His Orchestra (Nazi Propganda), Date with the Duke, Eddie Condon Jazz Concert, Esquire Jazz Concert, Jubilee, Music Depreciation, Navy Swings, Live from Birdland, and New Orleans Jazz Band.

    I have to say, personally speaking, the gratitude is all my own for what you provide. As a born and bred Aussie I had no idea American radio was so fabulous during its heyday. The closest I knew about these radio days and shows was a very funny episode of Frasier where they tried to recreate an old time radio play. You probably know the episode. I've since realized OTR is a veritable Aladdin's cave of unrivalled entertainment treasures. What is especially valuable is the insights you get into the actual personalities of the performers. They become multi-dimensional people that you are able to relate to, and the self-deprecation and humor is astonishing, very funny and highly entertaining. And you don't have to have lived in the era to appreciate it. So hopefully, your great business endeavor will continue to thrive and bring great joy to the listeners of these programs.

    I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate your web site. You do a superb job providing historical information regarding these wonderful broadcasts. My particular area of interest is the popular music of the 1930's and 1940's (the "swing era"). I also like advertisements from this period. Thank you for making these great broadcasts available to all!
