Rapidly Rotating Records Show – February 5, 2017

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. 

On this week's show we have not one, not two, but three birthday celebrations and each is getting his own segment for the very first time as we celebrate the birthdays of Clarence Gaskill, Carleton Coon and Arthur Sizemore. In addition, we'll find out what's lurking in the moonlight and do some climbing. And a fair number of this week's records are being heard on the show for the first time.
