Summary
  • "Fats Waller on the Air: The Radio Broadcasts and Discography meticulously documents Waller's on air appearances from his first known broadcast in 1923 at age nineteen to the final airing before his premature death in 1943. Author Stephen Taylor combines established material with fresh research, resulting in a wealth of new information. The broadcasts, including tributes to Waller after his death, are covered in detail, featuring dates, times, songs played, and other artists who appeared on the programs. Through descriptions from contemporary newspapers and magazines, accounts from individuals who were in attendance, and remarks by radio announcers from original transcripts, Fats Waller on the Air provides historical perspective and a clear sense of the character and feel of the broadcasts. The book also offers a timechart of early sound recording and radio transcriptions.
  • Never before published photos and a thorough discography including 78 and 45 rpm records, transcriptions, LPs, CDs, and DVDs make this an important reference tool for fans of Fats Waller, jazz music, stride piano, black social history, and broadcast history."--BOOK JACKET.
