I’m Chucky T and I’ll be resurrecting the archetypical American rhythms and stylings of Blues, Swing, and Soul from Post-WW2 to just yesterday with an emphasis on artists currently performing and recording.
Just like Chuck Taylor’s 1923 design for Converse All Star Hi-Tops is very much in fashion today, some music is timeless. We live in an age of big media force-feeding us music that is less and less diverse every year. I hope to counter that with a passion for music that has its roots in the time-tested genres of Blues, Swing, and Soul.
If you’ve asked yourself once too often “Who stole my radio?” then you have come to the right place. Because I am all about Resurrecting Retro – barefoot Blues, saddle shoe Swing, and hi-heel sneaker Old School Soul. And occasionally I’ll toss in a little Funk, Gospel, Zydeco, or whatnot into the pot.
Every week I try to help you out of your work-week woes with some toe-tappin’, thigh-slappin’, hip-shakin’ tunes that’ll put a smile on your face and a bounce in your dance step. “If you can’t dance to it, I don’t cotton to it!”
Please visit my Resurrecting Retro Facebook page where I do my best to promote the artists I love to collect. I also regularly highlight the local club, concert, and dance scenes that reflect my own personal tastes.
