The Retro Cocktail Hour #773 (rebroadcast)

From Kansas Public Radio | Part of the The Retro Cocktail Hour series | 01:58:00

The Retro Cocktail Hour is a finger-snapping, hip-shaking blend of space age bachelor pad music, tiki tunes, private eye jazz and other incredibly strange music.

Logo_hires_small

The music is served "shaken, not stirred" every week on The Retro Cocktail Hour.  Here you'll find vintage recordings from the dawn of the Hi-Fi Era - imaginative, light-hearted (and sometimes light headed) pop stylings designed to underscore everything from the backyard barbecue to the high-tech bachelor pad.

Among the artists featured on The Retro Cocktail Hour are lounge legends like Frank Sinatra and Juan Esquivel; tiki gods Martin Denny and Les Baxter; swinging cocktail combos featuring The Three Suns and Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo; and mambo king Perez Prado.  The series also spotlights up and coming lounge/exotica artists, including Waitiki, Ixtahuele, the Tikiyaki Orchestra, Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack, the Voodoo Organist and many more.

 

Each hour of the show is discrete and can be used in a variety of ways - a weekly two-hour show; a weekly one-hour show; or twice weekly one-hour shows.  Custom promos and fundraising pitches available on request.

 

 Join host Darrell Brogdon at the underground martini bunker for the sounds of space age pop and incredibly strange music!
