Great Music and Fantastic Host

Since I discovered the Big Band and Swing podcast a month ago, I’ve been working my way sequentially through the episodes, enjoying each one more than the last.

The music is, of course, fantastic but it’s the host, Ronaldo, who takes the show to the next level. Lively, engaging and brimming with information on the artists, Ronaldo is as likable a companion you could hope for on your big band journey.

Whether you’re a total newcomer to the genre or you’ve been listening for decades, there’s plenty to keep you entertained in each episode. So happy to have discovered it!!
