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 evenings at 6:00 PM over KISL FM 88.7 Avalon.
This week we're back with a BRAND NEW show! All of the topic segments on this show were inspired by the recent West Coast Ragtime Festival in Sacramento, California. We're going to play some tricks on you, find out what's on the river, take a musical trip to Kansas City, we'll go mad and play some rags (but not the kind you're probably thinking of.) As always, just click on the link below to instantly listen streaming online and/or download the show. And of course, your comments, topic suggestions and requests are always welcome. Enjoy the show!
