Part 5 of iconic love stories of Classic Hollywood are the musical couple Betty Grable and Harry James...Harry rumbled with George Raft over Betty..

Read more

On part 5 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood my pal April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Pin up Betty Grable and Harry James. They both had crazy childhoods. They met and it was KABOOM. The problem was Harry was still married to wife numero uno and Betty was involved in a two year on and off relationship with George Raft. After some drama they married. Harry was on the road a lot and Betty stayed in Hollywood doing movies. They both got addicted to booze and gambling. Their daughters definitely did not think Betty was Mommy Bestest. She was distant and could sometimes be abusive. Harry was away he got to be Disneyland dad. There was infidelity, IRS problems and after a while absence did not make the heart grow fonder. Betty found out about Harry's infidelity (she had heard rumors but chose to ignore them) in a gossip column so that was it after 22 years of marriage. We talk after the divorce up to their deaths. We believe they loved each other up until the end. 

Thanks to April as always..

Episode 47: Harry James Angus

Read more
The very first song added to the Ever-growing Playlist of Joy was The Chariot by Melbourne, Australia band The Cat Empire. Today's guest is a member of that band. A man integrally responsible for many moments of happiness in my life, and that of hundreds and thousands of others around the world. The episode begins very reflective and sober, then works in to the excitement of songwriting, performing, and the energy between performers and audience that really creates an undeniable feeling. AFL and somehow even cricket get a mention, burnt coffee and a healthy mix of routine with improvisation. Even some Old Fashioned Mayhem! Check out Harry's new song now.

Harry James Angus from the Cat Empire - Vocal technique and the art of allowing

Read more

I’m lucky enough to call Mr Harry James Angus a really good friend, he’s the twin front man of The Cat Empire and a phenomenal solo artist as well. He has done so many amazing things in music and we are so lucky to have him on the show today. Harry really opens up and shares some of his struggles with being in a very popular ‘party band’ where you are expected to ‘put on a show’. He gives us real insight into what that’s really like as well as so much more. 

Here's what we chatted about: 

  • Living in the Northern Rivers and having a place to come home to
  • We go into detail about the role of practice as a musician 
  • Vocal technique and the art of allowing things to flow 
  • Is there another road and a deeper way to find self expression
  • Confidence on stage as a performer vs a truthful performance 
  • What success means to Harry
  • Writing, mixing and cannibalising songs 
  • Relying on old tricks and learning how to get out of your own way 

Some of our favourite quotes from this episode. 

“For me, practice the last few years has been all inclusive” its’ been sitting down at the piano, singing and working on my attitude in others things as well” 

“You think you have to try so hard to make the music happen and really the deepest and most powerful music is actually effortless” ….and all your effort is just a blockage getting in the way of a river of music that is always way”

“I just feel like we are crying out for performers who can find the ‘still small voice“

“I’ve gotten to this place where I’m unravelled and I’ve got to build myself back up again into something different and even stronger”

Harry James 1971

Read more
David Goldin established Radio Yesteryear in 1965 as a mail order company offering tapes of classic radio broadcasts to collectors. In 1970, after much success in packaging these materials for release by other record labels, he created Radiola Records as the first label devoted to reissuing radio broadcasts. Radiola, and its sister label Sandy Hook Records, went on to issue more than 300 releases on vinyl (and later cassettes and compact discs as well). These releases covered a wide range of content first broadcast during the Golden Age of Radio, from spoken word drama and comedy, to variety and music programming. Continuing with part two of Harry James, I am going to present Harry James 1971. This was a live broadcast issued on the Sandy Hook label in 1984 thus the reason for the short history. It is a great concert and I hope you enjoy the music from Harry James and his Music Makers 1971. Please visit this podcast at http://bigbandbashfm.blogspot.com
