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.
On this week’s edition of the show we’re going to break all the rules and play a record from 1959! If you like plants and know what tecoma capensis is, you’ll be able to figure out what the topic of the first segment of the show. We’ll also hear about some Russians (NOT having to do with the current political situation), get refrigerated and join the crowd. If you enjoy the show, please let us know by leaving a comment on the website or the Facebook page or sending an email to Glenn@RapidlyRotatingRecords.com.
