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.
While you're listening to the original broadcast of this show, I'm in Virginia on a business trip. I was born in Virginia, but I don't think the Commonwealth has ever had its own segment on the show. Well, we're making up for that with not one, but TWO Virginia segments! We'll also keep things simple, go on patrol and hear about some soldiers. Several records on this week's show are making their RRR debut, so let us know which is your favorite.
