Album Notes
With over 300 000 YouTube views, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters prove beyond doubt that their brand of 1920s jazz has a rip, rock and zip that's 21st century.

"Hello there, Greg, I just want to say that I LOVE this mix so much, always gets me through my assignments and cheers me up ('exactly like you' is my favourite) I wish more people made amazing music like you! I wish I was born in this era, I'm only 22 and I'm behind you all the way! :) x" Bethanie

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters are the Kings of Frantica Antica Jass...

"Absolutely flooring. We must say Greg Poppleton's music always hits the spot - so authentic sounding!" Women's Vintage Radio Hour, (USA)

“Listening to the 1929 recording by the Mound City Blue Blowers of I Ain't Got Nobody and My Gal Sal shows the Broadcasters have captured the basic sound. Not surprising when you consider the group includes musicians of the calibre of Paul Furniss (reeds) Al Davey (trumpet and trombone) and Lawrie Thompson (drums and washboard) who show how well they have mastered the style. Grahame Conlon (tenor banjo) makes a mockery of those many banjo jokes with his rollicking solo on The Road To Gundagai. As for the leader, he has captured that decade's vocal style to perfection especially on Falling in Love Again sung in both English and German. As enjoyable as they are to listen to The Bakelite Broadcasters must be even better live”
Kevin Jones, 102.5FM Fine Music jazz critic

“Greg has the natural knack of sounding exactly like a 1920s singer,”
John Buchanan, Jazz Festival and Concert Producer

"Greg sang all the top songs of the 1920s…There were many happy faces in the audience,”
Warren Fahey, record producer and music historian

"Poppleton captures the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy,"
John Gilbert (USA)

“Greg Poppleton has captured the essence of the jazz singers of that era [1920s],”
Gerald H Beulah Jr, (USA)

“Makes me want to slip on my two-tone oxfords, tie up my bow tie, and meet my honey on the dance floor,”
David Byrne (USA)

“Awesome. Totally fun,”
Jesse Miner, Manu Smith, ‘Hey Mr Jesse’ podcast (USA)

“Greg nails the 20s vocal stylings,”
Bill Lawson, Jazz On The Terrace
