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 do some fighting, lurk in the shadows, get goosed, play a game, and have a sister act.
Enjoy the show!
