Welcome to Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can't *not* tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78RPM records of the 1920s and'30s.
You're "gonna wanna" listen to this week's edition of Rapidly Rotating Records because we're going to have a breakdown–several, actually–we'll do some squabbling, and we're going to take a musical trip to New York. And a fair number of this week's records are being heard on the show for the first time.
