On this week's brand new edition of RRR, we're gonna take a musical trip to Persia and some other distant lands, play the 'cello, hear from some dream girls, and celebrate World Whale Day. The oldest record on the show this week is from 1911 and the newest is from 1938. My favorite record this week is "Where Are You, Dream Girl?" by The Knickerbockers (Ben Selvin). Not "great" music, just an eminently danceable, hummable tune, with a nice, smooth vocal by Larry Murphy. As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. And your comments, requests and topic suggestions are encouraged. What's your favorite record this week?
