It has been five years since Backbeat first aired I'm so marking the occasion by digging into the archives and playing some of my favourite records, mostly from that first year before the show as syndicated. Got some great ones here, from Lionel Hampton, whose explosive jazz helped set the stage for Rock & Roll to Brad Strang, still making music today in the old time way.
