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.
On this week's brand new edition of Rapidly Rotating Records, we're going to take a musical journey to Pasadena, get serenaded, celebrate Fats Waller's birthday, learn a new word and literary device, and honor and remember our war dead. When my wife and I go to the movies, we're always the last people out of the theatre because we watch to the last frame of the film, even paying close attention to the credits. Please listen to this particular show to the very end. As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show.
