PS: Hey, sorry about the wierd start to the show, and it ran a little long, but I thought it was time to try something a little different than usual and get a podcast up before the month was over.
Also, I want to point out the song by Ida James. It’s not a typo. Someone had pointed out to me that her name should be spelled Etta. You would be correct if she were the popular blues singer who recently passed away, but at the time of this recording, Etta James would have only been 5 years old. In the 1940’s, Ida James was a full grown woman, and sang many songs with the King Cole Trio. She was a favorite of those in the military during World War 2, and definitely had an amazing voice that secured her career in jazz.
