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 we're back with a BRAND NEW show! We're going to pitch some ideas, celebrate the birthdays of Richard Whiting, Bennie Moten and Raymond Egan, and, for the first time on the show, we'll celebrate the addition of the 48th of the United States of America. That state? Oklahoma! I think all of the records in the Oklahoma segment are making their RRR debut on the show, so let me know what you think of them.
