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.
To help celebrate the Old Town Music Hall’s 50th Anniversary, we’re going to play some records by British music hall performers from the turn of the century.
