In the latest Notes from Poland podcast, our editor-at-large Stanley Bill talks to contributing writer Juliette Bretan, who is an expert on Polish popular culture of the 1920s and 1930s.
They discuss the music, cinema, stars and broader history of the interwar period, while also presenting seven classic songs – from tango to cinema, from Mieczysław Fogg to Eugeniusz Bodo and the eastern sounds of Lwów.
You can find the lyrics and publication details of the featured songs here.
