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 on May 22, 2005, but if you didn't happen to hear it then, it's new to you. And even if you did hear it, that was over a decade ago and it holds up well and is worth hearing again. We'll celebrate the birthdays of "Lonesome George," Felix Arndt and Fats Waller, commemmorate Charles Lindbergh's flight and listen to this past week in recording history.
