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.
Not that we don't play them every week, but on this week's show, we're going to play some "terrific" songs. We'll also celebrate International Women's Day with what else but some songs about women. And we'll celebrate the birthdays of Bix Beiderbecke, Peter DeRose and Walter Hirsch, all of whom share a March 10 birthday. And a number of records on this week's show are making their Rapidly Rotating Records debut.
