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 was originally broadcast exactly five years ago, but it will be brand new to many listeners, and even if you heard it then, it's worth hearing again. We're going to take up arms, hear about some guys named Charlie, we'll say hello to Dolly and celebrate a number of birthdays. And a number of records on this week's show are making their Rapidly Rotating Records debut.
