Welcome to "Rapidly Rotating Records", Glenn Robison's weekly, one-hour radio program of "toe-tapping music from rapidly rotating 78 RPM records of the 1920s and 30s", broadcast Sunday evening at 6:00 PM over KISL FM 88.7 Avalon.
This week, in addition to celebrating the birthdays of Irving Kahal, Peter DeRose, Bix Beiderbecke and Ben Selvin, we're gonna get sloppy drunk! Well, musically, that is.
