MacVooty Radio -- WOW!

The Oroony Oreeney O'Routee Mellow McVouty Groovy Site in Vout! You can dream all you want, but even in your wildest dreams there could never be a 24-7 Slim Gaillard radio station. Or could there? Thanks to the advent of internet radio, your dream has become a reality. This station plays the oroony oreeney oroutee mellow mcvouty groovy music of Slim Gaillard (and occasionally accompanied by his zany bassist Slam Stewart) twenty four hours a day. Despite it all, the world just keeps getting better and better in certain respects.

If you haven't had the good fortune to know the music of Slim yet, here's a little quick bit of info on the man:

Born: Bulee Gaillard, January 4, 1916, Detroit, Michigan - Died February 26, 1991 - England Other sources including Gaillard himself have claimed he was born on 1 January 1916 in Santa Clara, Cuba. Gaillard led an adventurous childhood. On one occasion, while traveling on board a ship on which his father was steward, he was left behind in Crete when the ship sailed. His adventures became more exciting every time he recounted his tales and include activities such as professional boxer, mortician and truck driver for bootleggers. Originally based in Detroit, Gaillard entered vaudeville in the early 30s with an act during which he played the guitar while tap-dancing. Later in the decade he moved to New York and formed a duo with bassist Slam Stewart in which Gaillard mostly played guitar and sang. Much of their repertoire was original material with lyrics conceived in Gaillard's personal version of the currently popular 'jive talk', which on his lips developed extraordinary surrealist overtones. Gaillard's language, which he named 'Vout' or 'Vout Oreenie', helped the duo achieve a number of hit records, including 'Flat Foot Floogie'.

Swing Shift

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
