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.
Last week there was a lot of talk on the news about some guy named Bill, so on this edition of the show we'll hear some rapidly rotating records about some guys named Bill, but definitely NOT the one on the news. The Great American Eclipse will take place in August, so we'll have some songs about Mr. Sol. We'll also do some bending, pick some sunflowers and get horny (!!) Several records on this week's show are making their RRR debut, so let us know which is your favorite.
