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.
Do you know who Ernie Palmquist is? If not, and even if you do, by the end of the show, you’re going to find out more about Ernie Palmquist than you probably ever wanted to know! We’re also going to follow-up on last week’s segment about “needle drops” by playing a set of Edison electrical “Needle Type” lateral records. I forgot to credit Jerry Cooper on last week’s show, so we’ll make up for that error by playing a couple more of Jerry’s records with other bands. You hear a lot about cover ups in the news lately, so we’re going to have some cover ups of our own. But the show will start, for no particular reason, with a set of rapidly rotating records about reasons. Now that’s reasonable, isn’t it? 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.
