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 are literally hundreds of “Nation this day” and “National that Day”, some commemorating worthy causes and event, and some rather frivolous. On this week’s edition of the show, we’re going to celebrate a couple of each. Some of you may still be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day (or haven’t recovered from it!) so we’re going to have some songs for St. Patrick’s Day. 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.
