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 show has no segment topics! That's because last week, my wife and I had the great pleasure of seeing the Pasadena Roof Orchestra live at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, CA. We have been fans of the PRO since the 1970s when I bought my first of their LPs. This week's playlist consists of vintage recordings of (most of) the songs that the orchestra played during the concert. Please visit the Pasadena Roof Orchestra at their Facebook page or their website.
As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. Your comments, topic suggestions and requests are always welcome. Let us know what your favorite record is this week.
