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.
It is said that nothing is free, but that’s not exactly true. Listen to the third segment of the show to find out how you can get a free subscription to The Syncopated Times, the national newspaper devoted to exploring the worlds of jazz, ragtime and swing. On this week’s show we’ll also do the chicken reel, have some syncopation and celebrate the birthdays of Ben Ryan and Paul Whiteman. 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.
