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.
This week's brand new edition of the show celebrates not one, but four birthdays and I don't think Ben Ryan or Albert Von Tilzer have ever had their very own segments before. We'll also spotlight "Pops" (Paul Whiteman) and Sidney Arodin. In addition, we'll revisit some disasters (hoping this show isn't a disaster!) There are several records making their RRR debut including one by Bob Miller. 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!
