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 know, last week’s show was an “encore” presentation of the December 30, 2007 show because I was down most of the week following Christmas with a rather severe cold. I’m happy to say I recovered enough to have a quiet but pleasant New Year celebration at home and am now feeling almost 100%. Christmas being not just a day but a season, I had it all planned out to continue the season with a new show consisting of songs having to do with merriment, jollity, happiness, joy and cheer. So for this first RRR show of 2018, here’s the show that was supposed to be on last week. 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 to Glenn@RapidlyRotatingRecords.com. . 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. Best wishes for a safe. healthy, happy and exceptionally prosperous New Year.
