My new obsession is flappers. This usually happens when I start a new music project. My newest is Bootless Betties, a 1920s-40s hot jazz vocal trio. I have been reading a plethora of books about these fun ladies and I've come to the conclusion that the social atmosphere after WWI was very similar to the atmosphere after WWII, especially in the regard of women workers during the war. This has peaked my interest enough that I might incorporate it into my masters thesis on women in rockabilly music. Stay tuned for more on that...
Listen to 1920s and 30s music online at Radio Dismuke.
