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.
This is the last chance to take advantage of the special offer from The Syncopated Times. Donate $100 or more to KISL and RRR during the month of April and receive a free, one-year, 12 issue subscription to the national newspaper that serves as the communications hub for the hot jazz, ragtime and swing communities. Just send an email to Glenn@RapidlyRotatingRecords.com and let me know you’d like to donate, and we’ll get you started right away. April is almost over, so take advantage of this special offer now. On this week’s edition of the show there are no birthday salutes, no historial event references and no commemorations. The segment topics were just sort of chosen at random. No matter. It’s still a great show with some records being played for the first time on the show. Despite having some swell records in the fourth segment, it’s going to be a real stinker! We’re also going to do some salaaming, and at the end, we’ll try to catch our breath. 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.
Enjoy the show!
