Retro Radio Show


Music for Sunday Date, Vol. 10

Hello everybody, hi all, this is Karel, and spring is in the air.

Czterech is a Polish beat band. «Śpiew Wiosny» was written by guitarist Marek Bliziński, and EP was released on Muza Records (Muza N0499) on April 30, 1967.

Margreta Nikolova is one of my favorite Bulgarian singers. «Spring and Me» was written by Kubichek. I ripped the song from an old vinyl, hence some hiss and clicks.

The famous Uzbek singer Botyr Zakirov was born on April 26, 1936. He sings a love song in Hindi. The song was written by composer Shankarsinh Raghuwanshi.

Luigi Ionescu was born on April 3, 1927. He's one of the most popular Romanian singers from the 1950—1960's.

«Ty Vseh Miley I Nezhnei» in Armenian language is sang by Sergei Davidyan. Sergei Davidyan made this song by young composer Arno Babajanyan popular all over USSR in the late 1950's. It is from the motion picture «The Song of the First Love / Arajin Siro Yerge».

Domenico Modugno was already very popualr in Europe when he came to Moscow, USSR, for the first time in 1962. His concert with Nello Ciangherotti Orchestra was marvellous. Here's an interesting recording from that conecrt. At the beginning there's a little introducion, and Domenico started to sing «Selene» in Russian!

The last song today is by Vocal Quartet Gaya. They are from Azerbaijan and this song is a traditional Azerbaijan tune. It was recorded from radio back in 1969.

Огромное спасибо за ведение блога и те драгоценные подарки, что вы здесь публикуете. О Вашем блоге узнал из ЖЖ сообщества rare_old_weird. Хотя сам принадлежу относительно молодому поколению (мне 28 лет), живо интересуюсь ретро музыкой и культурой. Она напоминает мне о детстве, когда я заслушивался средневолновыми музыкальными радиопередачами на карманном приемнике Селга. Слушая эти записи, я будто возвращаюсь в знойные летние дни начала 80-х ;) Еще раз спасибо! Всех благ! И обязательно продалжайте вести блог!
