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, we’ll be celebrating just one birthday, that of Edgar Sampson. But that certainly doesn’t mean we don’t have a whole show full of great music. The rest of this week’s segment topics flow out of last week’s show or the one before. Well, except for the one about the vocabulary word. We’ll have several musical answers to the question “What is love?”, we’ll get some reminders and we’re going to play the blame game. 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.
