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.
As you know, last week's show was rebroadcast from March 15, 2009, since I was in Durango, Colorado, attending second annual Durango Ragtime and Early Jazz Festival. We had a great time and this week's brand new edition of Rapidly Rotating Records gives you a glimpse into the festival. This week's show has only one topic segment, and that has to do with the festival. Each of the records on the show is somehow connected to the festival. 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. What's your favorite record this week? Enjoy!
