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 we're going to get tickled, celebrate the birthdays of Franklyn Baur and Elliott Shaw and have not one, but two segments of holidays, one of them dedicated to Billie Holiday.
In the first segment of the show I mention the new piano roll by Vincent Matthew Johnson of his composition "Tickling Julie." Please visit the Olivewood Music Rolls page on Facebook for information about it and all the other fine piano rolls by Carl Sonny Leyland and Tom Brier.
