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.
For those of you who were unable to tune in over the air or listen streaiming online to last week’s special 2 hour, live 18th anniversary show, the plan was to record the show and post it so you could vicariously share in the fun. Unfortunately, due to operator error, no doubt on my part, the show didn’t record. However, all is not lost. I will be recreating the anniversary show this week and will post it as soon as possible. For this week’s edition of Rapidly Rotating Records, we’re going to start off with nothing and eventually get to everything. And we’ll take a musical trip to “The Scenic City” of Chattanooga, Tennessee. 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.
