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.
On this evening’s show we’re gonna take a dip, take a musical trip to St. Louis, bring some joy to your otherwise dull, drab life, we’ll wake you up, and put you to sleep.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Wake Up
Last week we celebrated Billy Cotton’s birthday, but I didn’t mention that he would start his shows by shouting “Wakey Wakey”.
Don’t Wake Me Up, Let Me Dream – Howard Lanin and His Ben Franklin Dance Orchestra
When The Morning Glories Wake Up In The Morning – Jacques Renard and His Coconut Grove Orchestra / Johnny Marvin, v.
You’re Gonna Wake Some Morning – Ethel Finney
Segment 2: Joyful
The next three segments are the result of a request from listener Bob. There are three different topics, but there is a common thread… can you work out what it is?
Monte Carlo Joys – Gus C. Edwards Orchestra
Milenburg Joys – Ted Lewis AHO
I’ve Got The Joys – Lanin’s Southern Serenaders
Harlem Joys – Willie “The Lion” Smith and His Cubs
Segment 3: Dip
Papa Dip – New Orleans Wanderers
Dip Your Brush In The Sunshine – Ted Lewis and His Band / Ted Lewis, v.
Whale Dip – Blue Ribbon Syncopators
Segment 4: St. Louis
St. Louis Bound – Kansas City Tin Roof Stompers
St. Louis Shuffle – Fletcher Henderson’s Orchestra
St. Louis Gal – Original Indiana Five
New St. Louis Blues – Ted Lewis and His Band
And you’ve probably figured out that the common thread in the last three segments was Ted Lewis, and three songs which were requested by listener Bob.
Segment 5: Sleep
We started the show with a segment about waking up, so here to wrap up the show is a segment about sleep.
Sleep, Baby Sleep – Edwin J. McEnelly’s Orchestra / Elliott Shaw, v.
Dancing In Your Sleep – Ray Starita and His Ambassadors Band / Maurice Elwin, v.
Gosh Darn – Sleepy Hall and His Collegians / Bill Coty, Harold Van Emburgh, v.
