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 RRR, we're going to have a vocabulary lesson, something we haven't done in a while. We'll also celebrate 10, count 'em, 10, birthdays, including that of Phil Boutelje, who has not ever had his own segment on the show before. You may notice that the opening theme is cut short in order to squeeze in all the great music on this show. And you sharp eared listeners out there may notice that in the final back announce, I credit George Hanley with the music for "No Foolin'." Of course, we all know it's James F. Hanley.
As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. And your comments, topic suggestions and requests are always welcome. Enjoy!
