The Swing Museum @ 9PM EST Fridays with Jan Eberle
Jan Eberle and her dad Glenn Miller's #1 singer Ray Eberle
Swing Museum with Jan Eberle celebrates the very best of Big Band, Standards and Jazz. As a "second generation-er" and performer (daughter of big band singing balladeer, Ray Eberle and niece of baritone crooner, Bob Eberly), I've been blessed with a unique understanding and incredible passion for this Era. One of the things I enjoy most about this show is bringing snippets of history and rare tidbits about the artists and music... some personal.
