These archives arehere permamently and more are always being added.
This page has interviews with Big Band legends, their music, and what they were doing at that time of their life. There are even some with authors as well as the children of these greats. All gems. They have been placed here to help preserve our great musical heritage. Any donation would greatly be appreciated. This way we can feel better this platform will continue.
For the past five decades (late 70's to today) Chris Valenti has interviewed anyone who has been a proponent of the Big Band Era. From Harry James to Artie Shaw, Les Brown & Doris Day.
Chris has never been compensated for any of these efforts. It all came from the heart and still is. So while enjoying and listening to these many productions below and also enjoying all of the Big Band programs here at WYYR, just like PBS, special packages have been put together and any donation would greatly be appreciated.
