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 going to travel musically to Memphis, and fulfill a request, but most of what we’re going to play this evening will be for no particular reason.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Randy Brian’s Collection
I ran across a record in my friend Randy Brian’s collection called “Dotty” which it had caught my eye as it was my mothers diminutive “Dotty”. So here’s that record, along with a few others from Randy’s collection.
Dotty – Dixie Music Makers
Wow – Kentucky Colonels / Irving Kaufman, v.
Don’t Be Angry With Me – Frank Black AHO / Unidentified, v.
There’s Everything Nice About You – Nat Shilkret & Victor Orchestra / Ed Smalle, Johnny Marvin, v.
Segment 2: James Melton
Listener Dorothy in San Francisco asked to hear several songs by her favorite singer, James Melton. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the records she requested, but I do have these:
Do I Hear You Saying “I Love You” – Fred Rich and His Hotel Astor Orchestra / James Melton, v.
The Song Is Ended (But The Melody Lingers On) – The Columbians / James Melton, v.
Ramona – Ben Selvin AHO / James Melton, v.

Listener Michael asked for something by the Memphis Melody Players, inspiring this Memphis set.
A Blues Serenade – Memphis Melody Players
Wonderful Dream – Original Memphis Melody Boys
Miss Golden Brown – Memphis Jazzers

Our first segment was four records from the collection of my friend Randy Brian. For our last segment let’s turn those records over and play the other side.
