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 being a season of joy, on this week's edition of the show, we'll hear some rapidly rotating records about joy. We'll also spend some time alone, and celebrate the birthdays of Wilf Carter, Lud Gluskin and the State of Alabama.
