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.
There’s a little event going on in Hollywood this evening called the Academy Awards or The Oscars. Not to be outdone by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences, for the last segment of tonight’s show, we’re going to have our own Oscar presentation. Bandleader Emil Coleman is going to get his very own segment, even though it’s not his birthday. Why? Stay tuned and find out! We’ll also do some grieving, and hear from some collegial collegians. But to start the show, because we care about you, we’ve got a set of rapidly rotating records about caring. 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. .
