While we offer SwingThing to listeners ‘via our 24/7 stream, and also recently started making it possible to find and then play all the shows using our brand new site-search feature.. Both these “live” delivery methods rely heavily on this website to be up and functioning; which is something I’m not so sure we’ll be able to continue doing – ‘given the state of the US economy, and also because I’m just not getting any younger.
I’ve been trying to come up with as many ways of preserving Fred’s legacy to the world of jazz & swing as I can; with hopes that by getting the library out there ( and into as many hands as I possibly can ) there will one day be lots of copies floating around that can be shared between fans ‘long after this site goes away and I am finally gone.
I have made every effort to hold the cost of the complete library down for anyone wishing to get it, and to give our website listeners the an easy way to hear the shows without having to spend anything out of pocket. Of course, in the latter case, when (one day) this site will go down for good, only those in possession of the full library will then remain as the sole arbiters of my father’s life work. It’s a sad testimony that my children are not even slightly invested in preserving SwingThing for future generations as am I. Perhaps one day this will change, but I’m not holding my breath.
