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.
Since I had the pleasure of attending the second annual Durango Ragtime and Early Jazz Festival this past week-end, this week's show is from March 15, 2009. But if you didn't happen to catch it then, it's new to you. And even if you did hear it on its original broadcast, that was five years ago and it deserves another listen. We'll celebrate the birthdays of Bix, Bernie Cummins, Joseph Meyer and Peter DeRose, and fulfill a request. Just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. Your comments, requests and suggestions for topic suggestions are always welcome. Enjoy!
