Black Swan Records

There’s a fine podcast available (free) called Music From 100 Years Ago – I may have mentioned it here before. Last week’s episode was a look at “the first African American owned record label”, Black Swan Records, which made a big mark in the early 20’s.

The show is mostly musical selections, with pithy historical contextualizing from the unnamed host.

This kind of stuff is the lifeblood of the internet and the cure for the common radio. Whoever the host is, gosh-bless him. Check it out.

(Just found an essay about the label – find it here.)
