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 going to take musical trips to Mandalay and Monte Carlo, the real ones, not the ones in Las Vegas, do some moaning, hear some angelic records and have an early thanksgiving.
Enjoy the show!

Segment 4: Angels
Listener Joe in Bray, county Wicklow, Ireland listens to the show online at shamrockradio.com, and I want to acknowledge and thank all of our shamrock radio listeners. Joe sent a very nice email a couple of weeks ago with a request for Goodnight, Little Angel by Russ Morgan and His Orchestra. That recording was made in 1942, but I do have it, and even though it’s a bit past our focus of 1920s and 30s, it’s not so far past that I’m not happy to play it for Joe.
Goodnight, Little Angel – Russ Morgan AHO / Russ Morgan, v.
You’re An Angel – Georgia Washboard Stompers / Jake Fenderson, v.
Angel Eyes – Leo Reisman AHO / Charles Kaley, v.
