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 show, like last week, is also in four segments instead of the usual five. The past few weeks we’ve had first time birthday salutes for several composers and artists and this week we start off the show with another, that of Reginald Foresythe. We’ll also share what came in the mail the other day from Rivermont Records. The third segment of the show is “Bitter Sweet.” And you’ve probably heard it said that “life ain’t fair.” Regardless of whether that’s true or not, in the last segment of the show we’ll have some rapidly rotating records having to do with fairness. 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.
