Here’s a record that I have recently digitized and will soon be added to the Radio Dismuke playlist.

Anson Weeks was a popular West Coast bandleader who, for many years, performed and broadcast out of San Francisco’s Hotel Mark Hopkins.   This record is a good example of the diversity of the era’s popular music: “Ploddin’ Along” is up-tempo and full of “Roaring ’20s” exuberance while “Senorita” is a haunting tango.
