Join the SDL Club
Consider this your personal invitation to become a
member of the SDL Club.
SDL stands for Swingin’ Down the Lane.
It also stands for a dedicated effort to preserve
one of America’s proudest art forms --- big band music.
A LITTLE BACKGROUND:
For over 30 years I’ve hosted a weekly radio
program spotlighting the big bands --- everyone from Goodman to Garber,
Miller to Mancini and Ellington to Elgart. Each week I reach into our
database of 100,000 song titles to select recordings that fit the theme
of our program. We may play music to accompany an interview with a big
band vocalist or leader.
We may salute women in jazz or mark the 100th
birth anniversary of big band pioneers.

support, each Elite Member is designated on-air as program underwriter
