Anyone know what happened to Vegas Vic's Tiki Lounge? I've enjoyed his music for quite a while now, but as of a couple of weeks ago, the website returns an "under construction" page, all the feeds are gone, and his Live365 page hasn't been updated in a while either. Did something happen to ol' Vic? For reference:

Hope everything's okay.

Cheers & Mahalo,

I tried my weekly download of Vegas Vic and it's not on itunes at all. The last time Vic responded to one of my e-mails he said he would continue if he received good and regular feedback. I think lack of that may have contributed to the stoppage.

Only one person knows...Vic please post and let us know if you're gone.

Argh! I've emailed him a couple times asking where the podcast went, and since he seemed to be starting a new multi-podcast show "Sabu Martinez, Part 1" it looked like he was going to continue it.

Figures it went away the day I went to grab all the older podcasts I was missing, I listen to them all day at work! Perhaps we should create a repository somewhere of all the shows?

I've got the 69 podcasts in I-tunes - I'll be happy to share.

Unless Vegas Vic doesn't want to keep this stuff out there?

Vic?

I'd be interested I had these on my work PC and had to reformat to test an image and did not back up. Figured I could get them the next day.

Low and behold, they were gone.

I'd be very interested.

No more Vegas Vic! It's so sad!

Don't know what happened, but miss it!

Really, it was one of the best damn pod casts on the web. I learned so much about exotica - well, mostly everything, from listening to Vegas Vic. I had some of the pod casts, but not all of them down loaded. Now, I'm not so tech savvy, and I'm trying to figure out how to save them from I tunes onto a disk so I don't loose them for ever.

I knew it must have been a lot of work putting together a regular pod cast - I was always amazed he had taken the time to do such a fine job. Nothing good lasts for ever.

Maybe we should all e-mail him till he starts re-pod casting?

Create a new playlist in iTunes (I call mine "Burn List"), click-and-drag the podcast into that burn playlist, then record away!

Now that I've checked everywhere that I've kept them, it looks like the only ones I'm missing are these:

1 - Vegas Vic ventures into podcasting (6/1/05)
4 - The 3 Kings of Exotica Show (6/12/05)
13 - (There is no 13! Hah!)
33 - A Look Back (1/8/06)
51 - Mele Kalikimaka (12/18/06)
52 - Gene Rains (2/18/07)

Vic, are you out there? Do ya mind if we make a page to keep all these excellent podcasts somewhere?

I listen to my Vegas Vic & Java's Bacherlor Pad podcasts quite often. I do the Vegas Vic ones do pop back up. If it weren't for these two, I'd miss out on a lot of great tunes & bands.
