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’ll fulfill some requests, almost fill some other requests, listen to this past week in recording history and play some records for no particular reason.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Holidays
I love getting requests, and most of the time, I’ll have the song requested, although sometimes not by the artist requested. Well, such was the case this week. I got a request for “Every Day’s A Holiday”, and I have several versions of it, but not by the artist the listener requested.
Every Day’s A holiday – Fats Waller
Holiday Sweetheart – Ruth Ettings
Holiday in Venice – Ted Weems AHO / Elmo Tanner & Orch., v.
A Jazz Holiday – Bennie Goodman’s Boys w/Jim and Glenn
Segment 2: Merry-Go-Round
Another request this week was for “Love Is A Merry-Go-Round”, but again, I had the song, but not the version that was requested – however, it will spawn this set of merry-go-round songs:
When We Ride On The Merry-Go-Round – Chick Bullock
Love Is A Merry-Go-Round – Bunny Berigan AHO / Sue Mitchell, v.
Merry-Go-Round Broke Down – Russ Morgan AHO / Jimmie Lewis, v.
Segment 3: Getting it Right
For this segment of the show, I’m happy to say that I had the exact records requested this week by listeners Dan and Maurice.
I Can’t Believe That You’re In Love With Me – Roger Wolfe Kahn AHO
Maybe It’s Love – Kate Smith
I’ll Never Ask For More – Geo Olsen / Bob Borger, v.
Segment 4: No Particular Reason
We don’t always have a theme, sometimes it’s just a bunch of songs we like.
Four O’Clock Blues – Ted Claire Snappy Bits Band
How Could Red Riding Hood – Charleston Serenaders / Al Lentz, v.
Those Wanna Go Back Again Blues – Dave Caplan’s Toronto Band
Segment 5: This Week in Recording History
Songs that were recorded this week – in years gone past.
Parkway Stomp – Albert Wynn and His Gut Bucket Five / Punch Miller, v (October 9, 1928)
Jo-Anne – Edwin J. McEnelly’s Orchestra / Elliot Shaw, v. (October 8, 1928)
Rail roadin’ Some – Henry Thomas “Ragtime Texas” (October 7, 1929)
