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.
THIRTEEN! That's the number of years that Rapidly Rotating Records has been broadcast on KISL. We started back in late July of 2000 and have been here ever since. For the past 12 years, I've been able to find enough "numerical" songs associated with that years' anniversary for at least one segment. But darned if I could find and "thirteen" songs. So this week we've got songs about puppies, we'll take a musical trip to Detroit, fulfill some requests, fix breakfast and hear from some "Lynn"s.
