New Oldies - The All Night Record Man (Stay Up 'Stan') by Charlie Barnet And His Orchestra

Stan Shaw

Stay up Stan was a real disc jockey named Stan Shaw, host of a show on WNEW-AM 1130 in New York City during the wee hours of the morning (2-7 AM) that he called The Milkman's Matinee. The show made its debut on 6 August 1935 and continued until Art Ford took over the time slot in 1942. Disc jockeys spinning records was a really new concept in 1935. In fact, some say the very first one was Martin Block whose Make Believe Ballroom show started on WNEW-AM in February 1935.

Charlie Barnet And His Orchestra

So here's one last tune for my friends in the radio business. It was great seeing many of you in Las Vegas last week. Keep those platters spinning everyone!

Here's The All Night Record Man (Stay Up 'Stan') by Charlie Barnet (vocals by Charlie Barnet and Judy Ellington) on RCA Victor's Bluebird 10373 from 1939:

Well kids, the old clock on the wall is telling us it's time to close out the program. But stay tuned, there's more music on the way to get you through your busy day! Don't forget, when you need your music fix in the middle of the night, MusicMaster Oldies is always on the air!

  1. I can't believe I found this! This is my GRANDFATHER (dad's side). This is a way to get a copy of this record somewhere? I've been looking. I have a old album of awesome photos of this man from the 30s and 40s.
