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 it’s a “once in a blue moon” edition of Rapidly Rotating Records as we have not one, but two segments about “blue” moons. I don’t mention it in the show, but a “blue moon” is a second full moon in a calendar month, so it’s not all that long a time span. We’re also going to check the stove pipe, cut loose and celebrate the birthday of Ian Whitcomb’s uncle. That would be Tolchard Evans. 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. 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.
