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.
On this week's brand new show we celebrate the birthdays of the "Denver Nightingale" and the Badger State. We also have a segment about "greenbacks," have a "silent" segment and we extend an invitation.
The last song on this week's show is not a "toe-tapping tune" but is played on this Memorial Day week-end to honor all those who have lost their lives in service to the country. I hope you find it appropriate and I wish you a meaningful Memorial Day.
As always, just click on the link above to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. A number of records are making their RRR debut and your comments, topic suggestions and requests are always welcome. Let us know what your favorite record is by posting a comment here on the website or on our Facebook page.
