Wecome 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.
We haven't had a "One Thing in Common" show in a while, and it's been even longer since we've had a contest. But with this week's show, we've got both! All 16 of the records on this week's show have "one thing in common and if you can figure it out, you'll have a chance to win a copy of the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra's CD titled "Step With Pep." Send an email with your answer as to what the 16 records in the show have in common to Glenn@RapidlyRotatingRecords.com by midnight on Saturday, July 22 and if you're correct, you could win the PRSO CD. If you don't yet have a copy of "Step With Pep" and don't happen to win the contest, you can easily get your copy at RivermontRecords.com. Good luck and Enjoy the Show!
