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 celebrate the birthdays of two composers with whom you may not be familiar, Ernest Rogers and Billy Fazioli. Benee Russell, another obscure composer, also gets his own segment, even though it’s not his birthday. In the third segment of the show we’ll stay up until the wee hours of the morning and in the final segment, visit with some musical ghosts. 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.
