Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist: June 1, 2011
The tunes on this week’s show followed a secret theme. The first listener to guess – or come close to guessing -- what that theme was won a free CD: It Might As Well Be Spring by the jazz saxophonist Ike Quebec. The winner was TC’s own Tikigap!
Next week I will be away and we will repeat the broadcast of the April 20 jazz-tinged show. I will have an all-new show the following week.
Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge can be heard every Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m. Eastern Time on the Internet at: www.fcac.org/webr Unfortunately, this show is only broadcast live; there are no recorded shows archived that you can listen to.
