From Jazz on Concert, 1:00 pm on 27 December 2014

Boswell SistersThe Boswell Sisters were three hard-working vocalists who recorded a couple of hundred singles in around 6 years, appeared on radio, in vaudeville and in quite a few movies. After that period of success, at the end of 1935, they simply moved on with their lives. Steve Danby looks back at their careers.
