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 is the final Rapidly Rotating Records show…of 2014. Don't worry, we'll be back next year (next week) with a brand new show. This week's brand new show features a number of rapidly rotating records which are making their RRR debut. In addition to celebrating the birthdays of Fletcher Henderson and Abe Olman, we'll experience some heartache, try to answer the question "What's the use?" and hear some songs about strabismus! Listen to find out what that is! As always, just click on the link below to listen streaming online and/or download the show.
Best wishes to all my listeners for a safe, healthy, happy and exceptionally prosperous New Year! Enjoy the show!
