Retro Cocktail Hour
Friday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Swinging bachelor pad music, exotica, bossa nova and groovy movie soundtracks.

The Retro Cocktail Hour is a weekly hi-fi highball of vintage "bachelor pad" music, exotica, private eye jazz and eccentric, overstimulated pop music of the 1950s, '60s and '70s.

The show's spiced with everything from obscure Italian B-movie soundtracks and bossa nova to contemporary bands like Don Tiki, the Tokyo Panorama Mambo Boys, Waitiki, the Tikiyaki Orchestra, the Italian Secret Service, Balanco and others.
