Phantom Dancer

Your non-stop mix of swing & jazz from live 1920s-60s radio!

Multi-award-winning music and history show, non-stop mix and sonic journey, The Phantom Dancer, has been must-hear, cutting edge radio on 2SER since 1985.

Now also on 23 stations across Australia, The Phantom Dancer is 2SER’s first show about radio, the first swing show, the first digital show, the first show to publish playlists online, the first multi-platform show, and the first non-stop swing jazz mix.

Greg Poppleton knows his stuff. He’s Australia’s only authentic 1920s-30s singer and bandleader. He’s broadcast on the ABC, SBS & BBC. On-air, he lets the music and announcers live from hotels, ballrooms and cafes speak for themselves.

Greg creates a mood. The last hour is all vinyl. Every week, Greg picks a feature artist to write about on 2ser.com. And he selects a feature video. Hear The Phantom Dancer with Greg Poppleton every Tuesday 12:04-2pm and Saturdays 5 – 5:56pm
