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 leaving, have some marionettes, hear some songs by Larry Yoell, engage in some capers, and play some records for no particular reason.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Leave Me
Don’t You Leave Me Here – Charlie Johnson’s Original Paradise Ten / Monette Moore

Segment 3: Larry Yoell
On last week’s show I played “I Got A Misery”, which was written by Herb Scharlin and Larry Yoell, and mentioned that Larry Yoell wrote the lyrics to a number of other songs, including these:
