This week's brand new edition of Rapidly Rotating Records is posted! Just click on the link below to listen streaming online or to download. On this week's show, we'll play some "sweetheart" songs, some songs about "that thing", we'll visit the Wabash, go to heaven, and have a sale. During the show, I play three selections from the brand new Rivermont Records CD: The Shannon Quartet – A Little Bit of Heaven – Early Barbershop Quartet Recordings 1925 – 1928. I am very proud to have written the liner notes for the CD which are contained in the 40 page booklet accompanying the CD. It is available now directly from Rivermont Records. Click HERE or on Joe Busam's gorgeous CD cover below to go to the Rivermont Records website to see a description, the complete track list, hear audio samples and order. It's just $16. (plus S&H).
