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 wwek’s show we’re going to celebrate the birthday of Michael H. Cleary, and we’ll step up to the door, but the first three segments of the show are going to be devoted to another episode of “One Thing In Common.” You know. That’s where we play a bunch of records which seemingly have nothing whatsoever to do with each other, but in fact have “One Thing In Common.” Now it’s possible that listeners who live right here in Avalon on Santa Catalian Island might be able to figure out what the first 9 wildly diverse records have in common. But for the rest of you around the world, it’s going to be a little harder, so just sit back and enjoy the music and I’ll let you know the common thread at the end of the third segment
