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.
Last week we were “knockin’ a jug” which you will remembers is 20s and 30s slang for getting drunk. This week we’re going to continue knocking, but this time on wood. We’ll also have a losing streak, celebrate the Silver-Masked Tenor’s birthday and have a two segment edition of “One Thing in Common.” 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. And remember, your requests and topic segments are always welcome.
