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.
This evening’s show is starting out a little differently. This being our Christmas show, I’ve got a Christmas present for you: I’m going to shut up and just play a whole show of vintage Christmas records, with no commentary, no Ids, no promos, and no announcements.
Those of you who subscribe to the weekly e-mail playlist already know what’s coming up. But if you don’t receive the playlist, and would like to, you can sign up on the website at www.RapidlyRotatingRecords.com. If you would like to know about a particular record on this evening’s show, or if you have a request for a particular song or artist for an upcoming show, you can e-mail me at Glenn@RapidlyRotatingRecords.com
