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 is yet another “One Thing in Common” edition of Rapidly Rotating Records. Because I apparently don’t talk as much on this show, there are 17 great records, all of which have one thing in common. It’s not a contest and the answer is pretty simple. I’ll reveal at the end of the show what the common thread is. As 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. As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show.
Enjoy the show!
