Big Bandstand

Host -
Saturdays at 9:00 am
The best in swing music of the 1930s and '40s.

Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, The Dorseys and all the rest!  Steve Ward brings you the best in swing music from the 1930s and '40s every Saturday at 9am. You'll hear the great bands, the classic songs, and you'll know why Duke Ellington said, "It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing!"

Loving this morning's Halloween show

Perfect mood for this fine October morning. Thank you. You're making my day.

I, too Love Big Bandstand

This morning I heard you say you had cleaned off the record/recording of "The Loveliness of You" with some soap and a tooth brush. Then you played it and WOW! Such a beautiful song. I loved it... as with most of the music you play. Thank You, for all you do! My wife and I listen to your show every Saturday morning and never cease to be entertained.
