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.
On this week's "good enough" edition of the show we're going to celebrate the birthdays of Gerald Marks and Jack Shilkret, find out what "Madame" is up to, and you'll find out some things you didn't know you didn't know. My favorite record on this week's show is "I'd Walk A Million Miles (To Be A Little Nearer To You)" by Gerald Marks Hotel Tuller Orchestra with the vocal by William Fletcher. What's your favorite?
