Welcome to Glenn Robison’s Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can’t *not* tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and ’30s.
Summary of this week’s show.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 5: Eskimos
This next segment is all about Eskimos and was brought about because I happened upon the record that starts it off and just had to share it.
*Humoreskimo – Cliquot Club Eskimos / Tom Stacks, v.
Eskimo Rag – Billy Murray
The Eskimo Song – Charles Fulcher AHO
Don’t Be Like An Eskimo – Joe Haymes AHO / Cliff Wetterau, v.
Segment 6: Camels
As I was browsing through records for this show, I happened upon one about camels. So, this next segment is all about camels. And while you’re listening, see if you can remember which species of camel has one hump and which has two.

Segment 7: Birthdays
A number of artists had birthdays this past week, and we’re going to celebrate a few of them.
Irving Aaronson (here with His Crusaders, before they were the Commanders) was born February 7, 1896. James Hubert Blake was born February 7, 1897 was much more than just a ragtime pianist, he was also a composer (although he didn’t write this one). Born on exactly the same day as Irving Aaronson on February 7, 1896, was bandleader, songwriter and pianist Earl Burtnett. James Francis Durante was born February 10, 1893 and before he became a comedian and actor was a full time ragtime pianist billed as Ragtime Jimmy. He wrote Why Cry Blues with Jimmy Durante.
