Long thought of as something done only done by "loose" women in dark smoky bars, pole dancing got its start in the 1920s. Traveling circuses and sideshows would utilize pole dancing with a pole in the middle of a tent. Eventually the dancing moved from tents to bars, and combined with burlesque dance. Since the 1980s, the dance pole has increasingly been incorporated into striptease routines, and Go-Go or lap dancing, first in Canada and then in the United States. Today, however, thousands of wives and girlfriends have decided to take control and bring the attention of their men back home for this type of entertainment. Join us as we discuss what is considered eroticism to some and exercise to others.

Glenn Robison's Rapidly Rotating Records presents "vintage" music from rapidly rotating 78RPM records of the 1920s and 30s and "music to which you can't NOT tap your toes!" Host Glenn Robison plays roaring twenties hot dance bands, 30s sweet bands, show tunes, novelty tunes, blues, jazz and more on labels from Aeolian to Zonophone! Each show's five segments revolves around a theme such as a composer, songwriter or artist's birthday, a historical event or even a bit of trivia. Glenn also presents discographical information and carefully researched background information about the songs, artists and composers. "RRR" is in its 14th year of production and is proud to extend YesterYear Radio's reach even further back to the 1920s.
On Thursday October 17th, 2013 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a dramatic reading of occultist and psychologist Dion Fortune's fictionalized account of one of her mentor's strange "cases." Dion Fortune was very influential on modern Hermetic magical theory and practice. Her occult novels such as "Moon Magic" and the "Sea Priestess," are considered classics of occult literature. Her work is carried on by the Society of the Inner Light. Early in her career her master in both occultism and psychology was a man she called "Dr. Taverner." He operated a private sanitarium in a secluded moorland setting in England and the 1920s. There he treated unusual cases of dementia that responded to his occult methods of healing and exorcism. Dion Fortune claimed that these "Secrets of Dr. Taverner" were really true accounts, especially the vampire episode called "Blood Lust" which we will read and then discuss on this broadcast. So, if you've ever wondered just what vampires really are and how they operate, tune in and Dr. Taverner will explain how the dead can possess the living.
Join your host Wes Blackman for a two hour special edition of the show. Two guests will be featured and both have been on the show before. We will first welcome Seth Bramson to the High Noon in Lake Worth studios. You may recall that Mr. Bramson is the resident expert for the Florida East Coast Railroad. In our first show, we talked about the beginning of modern history in south Florida with the arrival of the railroad and ended up talking about the 1920s. We will start the conversation from there. My second guest will come on around 1 p.m. and it will be Chaz Stevens. Mr. Stevens authors the MAOS or My Acts of Sedition blog. We will talk about the just-closed criminal investigation he endured, local politicians of a "religious nature" who should come out of the closet, friend Fane Lozman's take on the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office and the city of Boca Raton.
First-time author Seta Terzian has quite a tale to tell about the romance novel she published last year. Two Girls from Heliopolis is a wonderful story about love and friendship that begins in the 1920s in a small suburb of Cairo called Heliopolis. Seta will talk about the book and also share memories about the peaceful and serene Egypt of 1940, when Tahrir Square (Ismailia Square then) was a quiet, clean and almost empty place.
Author Harry Lockhart Jr.
Growing up in St. Louis in the 1960s, Lockhart witnessed hundreds of Cardinals games – and even spent summers working aisle-to-aisle selling peanuts in the stadium as a boy. Now, Lockhart channels his experience and overwhelming passion of the game into a new book, exploring America’s favorite pastime during what baseball historians describe as the ‘age of pitching.’
The Beef examines batting combinations of 1960s baseball. Full of rare photos, player trivia, quotes and detailed statistics, the book adds merit to the careers of those players that were overshadowed by their baseball icon counterparts and have become lost in time by not being enshrined by the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
“Since Babe Ruth joined the New York Yankees in the 1920s, America has been intrigued with baseball sluggers and teams that stuff the middle of their batting order with power,” said Lockhart. “The 1960s was a decade of some of the greatest slugging combinations in baseball history as well as a time when the game’s greatest players didn’t receive the credit they deserved.”
Written for the true sports fan, MLB statisticians, history buffs and baby boomers, The Beef highlights those golden, forgotten moments in baseball history.
Host Rich Gehlhausen
Lisa King has completed her debut album The Language of Birds. She calls her group The Hot Place. “A patrolman apprehended the boxer Jack Johnson for speeding through his little town. He fined him $100 on the spot. Jack said, “Here’s a $100 for now and another $100 for later, because when I come back through, I’ll be driving just as fast.” The cop said, “Boy, if you keep acting like that, you’re gonna’ go straight to the Hot Place.” I thought, now that is rock and roll, and that’s what I’m going to name my band.” – Lisa King
Lisa wrote all of the songs on The Language of Birds. Although inseparable from her Mosrite bass guitar, she also played a roster of instruments, some raised from a steamer trunk of vintage guitars and analog synthesizers; others sprang from her wild antique menagerie like the 1920s Marxophone and the calliope-sounding Portatiev.
Lisa may have begun The Language of Birds by herself, but she hopes it feels more like a band called The Hot Place. She co-produced the album with The Swimming Pool Q’s’ Jeff Calder, who also played guitar and contributed his multi-instrumental diversity within the album. The Q’s Robert Schmid played drums. Southern Tracks’ Steven Morrison mixed most of the songs and performed on piano, 12-string and vibes. Mike Lynn, formerly of Betty’s Not A Vitamin, was a contributing guitarist, as well. Lisa King has a degree in Fine Arts from Georgia State University, specializing in cutting-edge printmaking disciplines like non-toxic etching and lithography. She’s been a member of the Atlanta bands Unminded and Threshold, and she’s played keyboards with The Swimming Pool Q’s and Glenn Phillips of the Hampton Grease Band.

Journalist Paul Lukas talks about a treasure of school records from the Manhattan Trade School for Girls he found in a discarded filing cabinet in New York City. What incredible data did these 1920s and '30s report cards and records contain? What stories did he find when he researched the lives of these young women? We'll also talk about the ethics of using school records in our work as historians and genealogists.
Paul is a journalist and media artist who specializes in the inconspicuous. His work has appeared in The New York Times, GQ, Fortune, Gourmet, Saveur, The Wall Street Journal, ESPN The Magazine, Spin, and The Financial Times, among many other publications. He currently works as a columnist for ESPN.com, where he writes “Uni Watch,” the sports world’s foremost (okay, only) column devoted to uniform design. His investigation into the stories behind some very evocative 1920s and ’30s report cards that he found in a discarded file cabinet resulted in a 10-article series for Slate.com, entitled "Permanent Record."
