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 birthday of John Stepan Zamecnick, but the format is a little different. How so? Listen and you'll find out. We'll also take a musical trip to paradise, hear some songs about Polly and some "Indian" songs and we'll celebrate National Doughnut Day. As Homer Simpson would say. "Mmmmmmm…doughnuts."
The last segment of the show is dedicated to my friend Bob Birchard who passed away last week. He was also one of this show's biggest fans. I hope those of you who knew Bob or knew of his work will find it a fitting tribute.
