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.
I graduated from Pacific High School in San Bernardino, California in 1967. And this week-end, I attended the Pacific High Class of 1967 50th Reunion! So this week, it’s a special high school reunion show which will be positively dripping with nostalgia as we go musically back to the old school house, remember teachers, old friends and sweethearts, go to the prom, and long for the “good ol’ days.” 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. As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show.
