You ain’t got a thing…

…. if you ain’t got that swing! Do-wah-do-wha-do-wah!

On the next episode of The Model Railway Show, Jim speaks with Russ Reinberg, editor and publisher of the always-inspiring Finescale Annuals. But Russ is not just a railroad modeler with a really great eye for detail. He’s also an extremely talented swing jazz musician who has played The Tonight Show and major stages.

What’s more, Russ hosts a podcast for lovers of this musical genre. Live from the Hotel Bridgegate is presented as a 1930s style radio show, but features some of the best swing jazz musicians of today. Playing it during operating sessions would be a great way to add atmosphere to any layout set in steam’s Golden Age.

And if you like what you hear, why not buy a CD or two of Russ’ own work, and help him produce more? Details can be found at Westlake Records.

Be sure to catch Russ and Jim on Episode 15, available for download by June 1st!
