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.
I hope you enjoyed last week's interview with Andrew Greene about composer Mel Kaufman. There was one record we didn't have time to play last week, and so it starts off the show this week as part of a "dreamer" set. We'll also do some "buzzin'," take a trip on a riverboat and celebrate the birthdays of J. Fred Coots and Shelton Brooks. 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!
