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.
Soon after I played last week’s “mystery record” several sharp-eared listeners wrote in to let me know the name of the tune that started off last week’s show. Unfortunately, we still don’t know the identity of the band, but research continues. The “mystery record” was an instrumental version, but we start off this week’s show with a vocal version of the song. Tune in to find out what the song is and all about the history of the song, and the life of the composer and lyricist. We’re also going to hit the trail, celebrate the birthdays of Al Stillman and Gone With The Wind, and get ready for the upcoming holiday. 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.
