American Grooves Radio Hour

American Grooves Radio Hour

SUNDAY 10pm

Hosted by: Joe Lauro

American Grooves Radio Hour, hosted by Joe Lauro, takes a deep dive into the music that America was listened to in the years before World War Two. It will focus on  the hot Jazz, pioneering Blues, iconic Country, rousing Gospel, witty Vaudeville  and diverse World Music which was  being performed on the streets and in the  taverns by new arrivals from all over Europe, Asian and South America.  Original 78 rpm records from Joe’s  vast archive  and the collections of other notable  collectors  will  be the exclusive  format played on the program. Besides the music, stories will be shared  of the forgotten performers who made the records  as well as fascinating stories of  how the recordings were re-discovered  by the pioneering collectors who “canvased” the country in search of the elusive records.
