I like the cd of the Paul Whiteman Orchestra that I'm listening to.

First published in 1939

This looks like a kid in his room video taping, but he does a surprisingly good job.

I think I like more music from that era than my parents do. I've linked to a fair amount of it on the jazz thread. For stuff that's either more "pop" sounding or country/bluegrass of that era: The Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn, Peggy Lee (although she might still count as just jazz), some Doris Day, some Bing Crosby, some of The Ink Spots, Bill Monroe, and Ed Haley.

Here's another version. Pretty darn good.

Keeping to the subject of this thread - how about the real inventor of Rock 'N' Roll, the great Louis Jordan (the term "Rhythm and Blues" was invented to describe his music in the mid-40s):

or the original "hipster", Cab Calloway (this clip comes from the 1932 W.C. Fields film, "International House")

Lee did do this song in the forties. (Although I don't know if this rendition is from then)

For some 1930s songs I have on CD, and listen to from time to time,

I have at least two versions of "Caravan" on CD, neither is that one. However it looked like an old rendition that might fit the era.
