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.
We’re going to go to some lengths on this evening’s show and we’ll celebrate Ted Koehler’s birthday, go to the beach, dream some dreams, and listen to this past week in recording history.
Enjoy the show!
Here’s the complete playlist:
Segment 1: Ted Koehler
July 14 marked the birth in 1894 in Washington, D. C. of lyricist Ted Koehler.

Segment 4: Measurement
July 14 in 1868, Mr Fellows was issued a patent for his improvement of the tape measure by adding a spring click would hold the tape at any desired position. So, I’ve gone to great lengths to assemble the following set of rapidly rotating records having to do with measurement.

How Long Blues – Count Basie (Piano)
