Heads up, cats and kittens.  The next playlist is now in the elimination round.  I'm pouring through the last 200 tunes in this season's queue in the hopes of boiling it down to the best 6 hours of music we can spin here at Dieselpunks.  

I started with 500 songs based on this Spring's theme of "love & passion," and I should be done in the next week or two.  

This weekend will be the deadline until our next playlist in the Summer, so if you have any submissions that fit the theme, get them to me ASAP at tome@dieselpunks.org.

I checked the archive and I didn't have a consistent playlist back then.  It was a weekly mix of whatever I felt like spinning at the time.

The heavy hitters of December '09 were:  Al Jolson, Al Martino, Bing Crosby, Chick Webb with Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Ella Mae Morse, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Gene Autry, Harry James, Helen Humes, Hoagy Carmichael, and Nat King Cole.

Cool. I'll check the archives when I'm back in the office.

Winter? - It was up in December 09. 

Comment by Tome Wilson on March 18, 2012 at 9:54am
Which season in 2009?
Comment by Alexandra Yelinkowa on March 18, 2012 at 8:39am

This playlist is simply so awesome, thank you for you effort! Also, doesn't anyone know if the 2009 playlist can be found somewhere (just the song titles are enough)?

Caravan Palace is simply perfect. But, recently, listening to their latest album, I suddenly had a feeling that had already heard something similar, and guess what? I think that their "slower" parts have some similarities to Portishead!

I love Caravan Palace. Thank for posting this Professor.

 I have just recently been turned on to this band "Caravan Palace" from France by a friend. The song is entitled "la caravane qui t'emmene". A fantastic upbeat Gypse-Swing-Jazz sound.

Ed has a great idea about jazz. Obviously the twenties was known as the Jazz Age for good reason.

Another idea is make it a Blues theme. Classic blues include modern.

For the next playlist, see what you think of the no-wave jazz band The Lounge Lizards' eponymous first album. The "Harlem Nocturne" cover is fascinating, as is the original tune "Conquest of Rar."

Also noteworthy are the electroswing outfit Der Dritte Raum, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, and Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire. Andrew Bird played on some of the Squirrel Nut Zippers stuff. By the way, The Wolfgang Parker interview was great, glad to see an Ohio boy representing us.

I didn't realize songs couple be rated. ;D I will go ahead and do that sometime.

Comment by Tome Wilson on January 31, 2012 at 2:00pm

As you're listening, be sure to rate the songs. This system lets us know which songs should be included in future playlists and which ones need to be dumped.

Comment by Lawren H.B. on January 30, 2012 at 12:24pm

yay! New playlist!

Comment by Komissar Hass on January 30, 2012 at 12:28am

many thanks! nice soundtrack to a freezing monday morning in Moscow.

Comment by Tome Wilson on January 29, 2012 at 10:10pm

Ladies and gentlemen.  I am proud to announce the debut of the 2012 Winter Playlist!

Comment by Tome Wilson on January 8, 2012 at 7:17pm

Hi Mr. Amage,

I've always felt that Richard Cheese's style falls into the post-War "lounge" era of music rather than the upbeat tunes of the '30s and early '40s big bands.

Stay in touch
