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 week’s edition of the show covers 24 hours, an entire day, starting off with songs about the dawn, then morning, afternoon, evening and ending with night time. Several records are being heard for the first time, and I’ll bet there’s at least one band in the lineup which is new to you. If so, let us know which one(s). You’ll also find out the history behind the Nat Dancing Palace in Amarillo, Texas!
