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.
If you’re a fan of vocal close harmony, you should be very happy with the playlist of this week’s show because it’s chock full of female and male close harmony groups. We’re also going to celebrate the birthdays of Elliott Shaw and Victor Schertzinger. In the last segment of the show we’ll remind you how to get a free one-year, 12 issue subscription to The Syncopated Times, the national newspaper devoted to exploring the worlds of jazz, ragtime and swing. We’ll also have a couple of songs about good times and better times. There are at least a couple of records making their RRR debut.
