Welcome to "Rapidly Rotating Records," Glenn Robison's weekly, one hour radio program of "toe-tapping music from rapidly rotating 78RPM records of the 1920s and 30s", broadcast Sunday evenings at 6:00 PM over KISL FM 88.7 Avalon.
This week's brand new edition of the show has no individual segment topoics, but it does have an overall theme and 17–count 'em, 17– rapidly rotating records. They were recorded b etween 1925 and 1937 and they all have one thing in common, other than being wonderfully toe-tapping tunes, of course. But, you have to listen to the end of the show to find out what the commonality is.
