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 have some pie, do some crying, go home, show off some dimples, celebrate the birthdays of Peter DeRose, Joseph Meyer and others, and say farewell. WHAT!! Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere, just playing some “farewell” songs.
Enjoy the show!
