In Storyville magazine No. 60 (August-September, 1975) Berhard Behncke
quoted from Berliner Lokal-Anzeiger of October 12, 1935 : "Niggerjazz is no
longer allowed". Berhard then said "Ironically this did not stop the
dictators pressing many jazz records from original masters until 1939.. but
only for foreigners and for export!"
In Storyville 61 (October-November, 1975) Horst Lange of Berlin wrote: "It
is simply not true to say that at that time jazz records were sold only to
foreigners or exported. Everybody could buy them in unlimited numbers from
most record shops until September, 1939. It was only on the German radio
that one heard no more jazz".
Lange wrote a book called JAZZ IN GERMANY which would probably discuss the
whole matter in detail, but it's not a book that I've read. How about it,
