More RadioLulu updates

I've added about a dozen new tracks to RadioLulu, the silent film inspired, Louise-Brooks themed online radio station of the Louise Brooks Society. All of the newly added songs date from the 1920's and 1930's.

I 've added a couple of early songs about the movies, Billy Murray's Take Your Girlie to the Movies and the Peerless Quartet'sSince Mother Goes to Movie Shows. Each of these recordings date from the teens. I've also added a track which possibly references the Lon Chaney film, Laugh, Clown, Laugh! by Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians. Also new is a Jazz Age-themed number by Nat Shilkret & The Victor Orchestra, Flapperette. There are a couple of tracks by Buddy Rogers & His Orchestra,While a Cigarette Was Burning and Lovelight in the Starlight. Interestingly, not only was Buddy Rogers an actor and bandleader, but he was also married to Mary Pickford. And lastly, I added some vintage recordings with "Louise" in the title, such as Coon-Sanders Nighthawks delightfulLouise, You Tease, Bob Crosby & His Orchestra's nifty Louise, Louise, and Django Reinhardt's version of the Maurice Chevalier hit, Louise.

If you haven't already checked out RadioLulu, please give it a listen. The station is growing in popularity. Here's a recap of my station's stats for January:

Total Listening Hours: 890
