Benjamin (Benny) Adolphus Rolfe was, at one time, best known for his coast-to-coast network radio program which aired weekly from 1928 through 1931. Called the Lucky Strike Dance Hour, it was like many early radio shows, named after its sponsor – in this case, a brand of cigarettes. He described his conception of dance music during this period in terms that "it should throb and laugh with happiness; it should have the rhythm of a rubber ball, bouncing back, only to fall again, going on and on." He remained fairly active in the radio field up through around 1942 doing shows for Ivory Soap and Ripley's Believe It or Not. He hosted the NBC morning show in 1935, and led an all-girl orchestra in 1942. B.A. Rolfe recorded for Edison throughout the late 1920s, the period during which he hosted the Lucky Strike Dance Hour. Ultimately, he had played 7,460 dance tunes during a total of 468 shows. The selections on this CD release are from that period and taken from the Edison collection of test pressing recordings, many of which were previously unreleased.
