    The music of a generation. Dance music remotes from restaurants, ballrooms, hotels, and nightspots were one of radio's most enduring formats. First heard in the early 1920s, band remotes lingered on until the early 1970s as a feature of late-night programming. The remotes were usually unsullied by commercial sponsorship, and, above all, they were live, preserving the music with a fresh spontaneity that explodes past the confines of the more familiar - and often abridged - studio recordings.
