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.
I hope you don’t have to labor on this Labor Day holiday, but if so, perhaps you can take a long enough break to listen to the two segments on this week’s show having to do with work. In the first two segments of the show we’ll play some records associated with the “Oh, You Kid!” craze of the early 1900s, and we’ll hear some records about some different kind of “bucks.” 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.
