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’ll play some CAPS records, have a half segment, go whale watching, half fulfill some requests, and celebrate some birthdays.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: CAPS Finds
A couple of weeks ago, I attended the annual California Antique Phonograph Society’s show and sale in Anaheim, California. Last week I played a blue Columbia that I got at the sale, and here are some other records I picked up. I don’t believe I’ve played any of these bands on the show before.
Do Something – Del Delbridge and His Capitol Theater Orchestra / Unidentified v.
She Chills Me – Chic Scoggin and The Pla-Mor Orchestra / Unidentified, v.
If I Can’t Have You – Gerald Marks AHO / Nelson Bitterman, v.
Black Horse Stomp – George Posnak AHO
Segment 2: Halfway
Half Way To Heaven – Cliff Edwards
Half A Moon – Devine’s Wisconsin Roof Orchestra
Half A Kiss – George Fisher and His Kit-Kat Band
Segment 3: Whales
Monstro the Whale – Ted Weems AHO / Red Ingle & Marvell Maxwell, v.
Whale Dip – Blue Ribbon Syncopators
Three Little Fishies – Kay Kyser / Harry Babbitt, v.
Segment 4: Requests
Joakim in Amsterdam, The Netherlands has been listening to the show for about a year and sent a nice email last week. He requested three specific recordings, and I have all three songs, but not by any of the bands that he requested. But these are some pretty nice versions, which he may not have heard, and which I think he’ll like.
Blue Baby – Kenneth Casey AHO
Take me in your arms – Walter Feldkamp AHO / Elmer Feldkamp, v.
Pretty Cinderella – Fred Rich and his Hotel Astor Orchestra / Unidentified, v.
