Welcome to Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can't *not* tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and'30s.
On this week's show, we're going to take a musical trip to the South Seas, we'll get tied up, have a set of songs about some gals, go for a drive, and even though it's not his birthday, Walter Krausgrill gets his very own segment. And, more than one of the records on tonight's show is making it's Rapidly Rotating Records debut.
