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.
Our family is fond of the phrase “It’s all about the stories.” And on this week’s edition of the show I’ll tell you one my favorite family stories. We haven’t had a vocabulary lesson on the show in a while, but this week we start off with one. We’ll also have some musical bouquets and a set of sorry records. They’re really good records, they just have “sorry” in the title. 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. .
