    Ok guys, here's some Big Band music to get you "in the mood" while working on the next Group Build or reading a book about the air war over Europe. Or for that matter, it's just good stuff to listen to anytime!

    These are high-quality WAV files that were proprietary to a great combat sim that came out in the late 90's. Let's see if anybody guesses which one!

    Anyway, Enjoy! :thumbleft:

    Great stuff Dave. In the mine I listen to 40's on 4 on the Sat. Radio and when I'm at home, I listen to the big band channel on Sat. TV(when SWMBO isn't home)

    Me too. I've got a trick memory when it comes to music. Even after many years I can whistle along with the tune and solos of many songs.

    I got into the Old Time Radio thing when I used to play Silent Hunter 4 ( If you didn't know it's a submarine sim set in the Pacific theatre )

    The boat had a 'radio' on board and you could download soundpacks of contemporary broadcasts which could even be synced to the game time and date.
    Obviously there was a lot of swing and jazz. Not my favourite music, but I find it pleasant enough to listen to. It was comedy shows like George Burns and Gracie Allen I really grew to like.

    Check out 'OTR' or 'Old Time Radio' if you like 40's music.
