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.
Last week's Transom Radio Story Workshop was a huge success, as you heard if you tuned in for the listening party on Friday evening. If you weren't able to catch it, I'm sure it will be archived on kislavalon.com and I will see about the possibility of posting it here on the RRR website. This evening's show winds up with one last song about radio with best wishes to all 10 producers on their future stories. Before that, however, we're going to go on a picnic, do the rhumba, get close, have some rays of sunshine and be a bee. As always, simply click on the link below to instantly stream and/or download the show. And your comments, requests and topic suggestions are always welcome.
