Here’s another great compilation album from my father’s collection. It’s filled with music from some pretty big names in the music world. And every tune swings…hard. There is some serious 1950s grooving going on within these recordings. And it was put together to promote pens. And not the ballpoint kind.

So, get ready to hear some of the most uptempo music you’ll find on this show with Volume 154: Swingin’ Sounds.
