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 show was "good enough," but this week's is "perfect!" as we fulfill a request, do some oohing and aahing, and play some records for no particular reason. My favorite record this week is "Ah-Ha!" by Paul Whiteman with the vocal quartet of Billy Murray, Lewis James, Ellott Shaw and Wilfred Glenn. What's your favorite? As always, simply click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download. And of course, your comments, requests and topic suggestions are always welcome. Enjoy the show!
