As much as I love the 40's and the WWII era I am not familiar with the music specifics. I know I really enjoy swing, jazz, ragtime, and other sounds of the 30's and 40's, but if I were on a quiz show to name song and artist I would fail miserably. So to you readers... please recommend 5 of your favourite old timey songs for me to get familar with. I am talking about the scratchy popping record sounds of the past. They have to be versions from the 20's - 40's. Songs that I would play on my old Victrola had I had one. I can tell you that I am a fan of Fats Waller already, so his gems won't need recommending.
