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 macropus giganteous is? Listen to the second segment of this week’s show and find out! In other segments we’ll take a musical trip to the bluegrass state, be merciful, get personal and with apologies to our friends who choose not to eat meat, we’ll be carnivorous. 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.
