Welcome to 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.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! This is the final Rapidly Rotating Records of 2016. THANK YOU for listening and for your support and encouragement through posts to the website and Facebook pages, email and memberships to KISL. I would like to make one request. Right now, we are at 592 "Likes" on the Rapidly Rotating Records Facebook page. I would consider it a spectacular Christmas gift to get to 600 by the end of the year. If you are on Facebook, but have not "Liked" the page, won't you please consider doing so this week? I generally only post once or twice a week with the playlist and links to the show. THANK YOU!
On this week's edition of Rapidly Rotating Records, we have a special birthday celebration for Henry "Bubbles" Reber, whose great-neice contacted me some time ago. We'll also celebrate the birthdays of Cab Calloway and Nat Shilkret, blow some bubbles and have some songs for the season.
