Swing Years and Beyond

The Swing Years and Beyond was a radio program on KUOW, an NPR station from Seattle. It began in 1968. Initially, there were several hosts until Bill Snoopy became the first to hold the position long term. In 1979 Cynthia Doyon took over the hosting duties, and in 2003 Amanda Wilde hosted until it’s last show on February 25, 2017.

There is a generation of Seattle residents that spent at least some of their Saturday nights listening to a thoughtfully curated playlist of music from the 1920s to the 1950s. I was able to connect with Amanda Wilde and offered to make one of her shows available for fans to download. Then, my scouring of the internet turned up two other shows available and have added them here.

If you have others that you would like to share, please feel free to reach out and I can add them to this list.
