Programmer / DJ for RadioLulu
About me:RadioLulu is a Louise Brooks-inspired, silent-film themed internet radio station broadcasting music of the Twenties, Thirties, and today. The station, which began in 2002, can be found at www.live365.com/stations/298896. Or, CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
This unique station features music from six of Louise Brooks' films - including the haunting themes from Prix de Beaute and Beggars of Life. There is Maurice Chevalier's much-loved 1929 recording of "Louise," as well as other vintage tracks associated with the actress. RadioLulu also plays Brooks-themed songs by contemporary artists such as Soul Coughing, Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark (OMD), Marillion, Ron Hawkins, and Sarah Azzarra.
Brooks co-stars and contemporaries are featured among the rare recordings heard on RadioLulu. Interspersed throughout are tracks by silent film stars like Rudolph Valentino, Pola Negri, Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, Adolphe Menjou, Ramon Novarro, Dolores Del Rio, Lupe Velez, Bebe Daniels and others.
On RadioLulu, you'll also hear torch singers, Jazz Age crooners, dance bands, show tunes, standards and some real hot jazz! And there are even tracks featuring the Polish chanteuse Hanka Ordonówna, the German dramatist Bertolt Brecht (singing "Mack the Knife" in 1929!), and the contemporary cartoonist Robert Crumb (playing on "Chanson por Louise Brooks"). And what's more, you're unlikely to find a station that plays more tracks with "Lulu" in the title than the always eclectic and always entertaining RadioLulu!
RadioLulu is your chance to hear some great music, including many rare recordings from the silent film era. For more about Louise Brooks - please visit the Louise Brooks Society website at http://www.pandorasbox.com, its long running blog at http://louisebrookssociety.blogspot.com/, or its page on last.fm at http://www.last.fm/user/LB_Society.
"Not many sites of any kind can claim to be celebrating a tenth anniversary online, but that’s true of the Louise Brooks Society, devoted to the life and times of the magnetic silent-film star and latter-day memoirist. Thomas Gladysz has assembled a formidable amount of material on the actress and her era; there’s not only a lot to read and enjoy, but there’s a gift shop and even a 'Radio Lulu' function that allows you to listen to music of the 1920s. Wow!" -- Leonard Maltin
