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.
Do you ever have cravings? Like for a particular food (ice cream comes to mind!) or beverage? Well, tune in to this week’s edition of Rapidly Rotating Records to find out what Art Gillham, the Carlisle Brothers and Gertrude Saunders all crave. Richard W. Pascoe gets a birthday segment even though it isn’t his birthday. Jelly Roll Morton’s going to tell us how he got the nickname “Jelly Roll” (at least according to him).
