Hi there, guys'n'dolls!

Russian radio station Roks www.roks.ru broadcasts a wonderful show dedicated to classic swing and neo. The show starts 9pm Mondays and 12am Sundays. Time is MSK, I believe it would be about 1pm Mondays at the west coast.
Show is in Russian, swing is hot and solid. Too bad if you don't understand Russian, there's always a swell story behind the musical numbers, but music is still music. You will surely hear something you've never heard before.

For those who are interested - please reply if you liked the show.

Hi everyone, here's my app:

Name: Stan
Nick Names: Swingaroo
Location: Moscow/St.Petersburg, Russia
Hobbies/Interests: swing music.
Favorite Bands: full range from Cats & Jammers to Hipster Daddy-O & The Grenades.
Favorite Books: can't list them all here
SWING Bands you recommend: try some russian stuff. doubt if you ever heard of'em. The Lexicon Orchestra from Moscow

Give us style(what do you like to wear): pin-stripe suit. no tie though.

EAST Coast or WEST Coast swing: lawd knows. some lindy, some boogie-woogie (that's kinda european form of WCS). Not much of a dancer now.

Can you dance it? Yes sir! I positively can. just not too fast and not too well actually. Like a tortoise on a hot sand

And for added bonus, what's your favorite color? mellow yellow that's the thing.

Anyone else think that Gwen Stefani looks better wearing Vintage than any of that other stuff she used to wear? I've seen the new video of hers on MTV-U (someone kill this channel, please). It's the one with her in a big mansion and a 40s blonde hairstyle.

Okay well I have noticed that no one ever posts in this little "club" of ours so... Yeah I come to tell you about my latest news!!

I am not sure if any of you are from the southern region but I am I live in Alabama but dance in Pensacola Florida. I am going to the Atlanta Lindy Exchange!! Which I am not sure if any of you have hear about it or not but I am going to have a blast and I know it. If you don't know how to lindy hop-- it is fun and once you have the hang of it, it isn't too hard. I lead and follow it! It is an awesome dance.

If you are going comment on this and let me know! Or if you are in the Pensacola area. It is a really neat dancing site here and I am one of the teachers. :)
