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.
Do you know what the 1920s slang term “knock a jug” means? If not, you’ll find out in the third segment of this week’s show. We’ll start off the show by doing the polka, we’ll jangle some keys and eat some spinacia oleracea. And for the final segment, we’re just gonna lose it! Per usual, there are at least a couple of records making their RRR debut. If you enjoy the show, please let us know by leaving a comment on the website or the Facebook page or sending an email.
