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.
As you’re listening to the original broadcast of this show, I’ll be in Madras, Oregon to witness the Great American Eclipse of 2017! Back in April we had a solar segment on the show in anticipation of the eclipse, but this entire show will be solar and lunar songs, because after all, without both the sun and the moon, there wouldn’t be an eclipse. Per usual, there are at least a couple of records making their RRR debut. If you enjoy the show, please let us know by leaving a comment on the website or the Facebook page or sending an email. And remember, your requests and topic segments are always welcome.
RRR is also available as a podcast on iTunes. Simply enter Rapidly Rotating Records in the iTunes search box and a link to the show will appear. Our iTunes ID has changed, and is now https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/rapidly-rotating-records/id1166703514. Unfortunately, with the change, we lost all of the comments and ratings for the podcast. If you use iTunes, please subscribe to the podcast and leave a rating and comment. THANK YOU!
