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 go on some fun rides, and we’ll celebrate the birthdays of Peter DeRose, Joseph Meyer, Ed Heyman and others.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Fun Ride
We have a very special listener, Marissa, who at 6 years old is already an aficionado of vintage music, thanks to my good friend Frank. Frank and his daughter together most weeks, and Marissa says the show feels like a “fun ride”. An excellent description if ever I heard one! So that’s the inspiration behind going riding on a rainbow, a buggy, a merry-go-round and a horse! And lest he thinks he was forgotten, I want to say “Hi!” to Marissa’s big brother Derrick.
