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, it's a special 2 HOUR edition of Rapidly Rotating Records. If you missed the live show, direct from KISL last Sunday evening, below are links to the "studio" version of the show. For your convenience, I have split the show into two separate files. We're going to get cuckoo, hear about some strangers, celebrate the admission of Tennessee to the Union, and celebrate the birthdays of Howard Johnson, Ben Bernie, Saxie Dowell and Frank Trumbauer. As always, click on the links below to listen streaming online, and/or download.
