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.
The playlist is a bit late this week since as you were listening to the show, we were enjoying the “after party” at the West Coast Ragtime Festival in Sacramento. We had a wonderful time and you’ll hear about some highlight on next week’s show. As for this week, we’ll start things off with a musical fruit salad, followed by a quick musical trip to Monte Carlo. In the third segment we’ll find out who’s in town (and as a hint, it’s not Lulu!) Actually Lulu gets her own segment and in the final segment of the show, we’ll play some music to get you in the mood for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. 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.
