Welcome to Glenn Robison’s Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can’t not tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and ’30s.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is the first Rapidly Rotating Records broadcast of 2019! I hope you had pleasant holidays and that the new year so far promises to be a good one for you. It certainly does here at the massive Rapidly Rotating Records / KISL-FM studio complex. This week we’ll celebrate the birthdays of James Melton, Jane Green, Carroll Gibbons and the state of Georgia. We’ll also have a “non-topic” topic. What’s that, you ask? Well, records I came across while putting the play list together out of which I couldn’t make a unified topic. Unlike our feature “For No Particular Reason,” there is a reason I’m playing each of them, and of course, you’ll find out just why that is.
Enjoy the show!
