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.
This week’s brand new edition of Rapidly Rotating Records is brought to you by Spitalny, Spanier, Moten, Whiting & Stacks. No, it’s not a high power law firm but artists and composers Phil Spitalny, Muggsy Spanier, Bennie Moten, Richard Whiting and Tom Stacks, all of whom had birthdays last week. And, there are several 78RPM records making their Rapidly Rotating Records debut on tonight’s show.
