Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist: May 11, 2011
On this week’s show we are heading to Tinsel Town, with a cinematic exploration of the music used in movies and interpolations inspired by celluloidical compositions ranging from the era of Don the Beachcomber to today’s Los Angeleno Tiki haunts. Next week I will be away and we will repeat the broadcast of the April 27 blues-tinged show.
