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 week’s edition of the show starts off with another episode of “One Thing In Common” where you try to guess what the four records in the set have in common. We’re also going to track our mileage, but of course your mileage may vary! Like Cinderella, we’re going to the ball–not just one, but three of them, as a matter of fact. We have no regrets about having some regrets and we’ll hear some words of wisdom about Mother’s Day from my wife’s distant relative, Will Rogers. (Her unmarried name is Adair and his real name is William Penn Adair.)
