My name is Ricky Hunter, and I’m a vintage entertainer covering the 40s and big band era. I am based in South Wales and I host several radio shows.
I have always loved the big band era but my love of music came from brass bands, big bands and 50s, 60s and country music. I am a huge fan of the great Harry James and Eddie Calvert, and I love hearing the trumpet sections screaming.
The first album I ever bought was the greatest hits of “Chicago” and “Frank Sinatra” live at “The Sands” (1966) with “Count Basie”. My favourite band is “Harry James and his Big Band” and my favourite artist is the great “Glenn Miller”. Although my favourite modern day band would be “Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band” and favourite modern day artist, “Seth MacFarlane”
I hope you can join me from time to time here on VYPA Radio, early Sunday mornings, to start off your day with so retro 40’s classics. You never know, you might just enjoy it.
See you on the airwaves.
