Welcome to Rapidly Rotating Records, bringing you vintage music to which you can't *not* tap your toes, from rapidly rotating 78RPM records of the 1920s and'30s.
This edition of Rapidly Rotating Records was delayed due to computer issues, but they were resolved *relatively* quickly and inexpensively and we're back up and running. Unfortunately, this show has some time sensitive information, but as they say, better late than never. I believe I've played a contemporary recording only once before, but there are several on this show. They're played to alert you to recordings and appearances by Vince Giordano's Nighthawks, Richard Dowling and Frederick Hodges. Thanks for listening and supporting these fine artists.
