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.
Most of the records on this week's show are making their RRR debut! We're going to celebrate the birthday of Fred Fisher, hear from some other Fishers, go fishing, celebrate some other birthdays and take a musical trip to the circus. My favorite record on this week's show is "Maybe I'll Baby You" by Max Fisher and His California Orchestra with the vocal trio of Johnny Murray, Leonard Layson and Richard Newlin.
