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 be looking into the future, we’ll do some wobbling, we’ll have some time for sergeants, have a cardiac set, a military set and listen to this past week in recording history.
