Welcome to "Rapidly Rotating Records", Glenn Robison's weekly, one-hour radio program of "toe-tapping music from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and 30s", broadcast Sunday evenings at 6:00 PM over KISL FM 88.7 Avalon.
This week's show is all "about you," as we have a special welcome segment, hear from British music hall star and actress Nellie Wallace (don't worry, I wasn't familiar with her, either!), and celebrate the birthdays of Fats Waller and Al Jolson. As always, simply click on the link below to instantly stream online and/or download the show. And your comments, requests and topic suggestions are always welcome. My favorite record on the show this week is "One O'Clock Baby" by Ben Bernie with Lambert & Hillpot. Let me know what yours is.
