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.
This evening’s show is musically all over the place. We’re going to try to overcome some fear, get mistreated, turn the key, hear from the Pearson brothers and play some records for no particular reason.
Enjoy the show!
