Key musical influences and themes which inspired his CD include the South Seas, vintage aviation, his grandfather (Bill Wolfgramm) and mid-century exotica.

Hey Centralites,

And if you'd like to catch up on my fill for Emma Peel's "Switched On" program, the audio archive is here http://pbsfm.org.au/node/59668. Compared to my regular broadcast, this program has a heavier focus on latin sounds and the swingin' sixties

Following a hair-raising start to this week's Halloween edition, we gradually moved into a more comforting selection of upbeat sounds (Phew!)

This week's broadcast featured the new release from Swedish exotica ensemble Ixtahuele - including an interview with one of their percussionists.

Later, I spoke with the curator of a new exhibition in Sydney called "Lure of the Primitive / Lure of the Exotic" - and discussed some of the issues relating to cultural appropriation.

And I also managed to squeeze in a selection of great midcentury music

Things started off kinda crazy this week, with some Yankee Doodle bongos (Happy Thanksgiving!) and an Israeli belly dance medley ... but fortunately we calmed down in time for a chat with Sydney jazz singer/songwriter/pianist Frances Madden.

Managed to sneak in some more stereo madness before the end of the show, though!

Much of the first episode for 2017 was broadcast from an exotic cocktail lounge



... while raising a glass (or two) to birthday boys Milt Jackson and Xavier Cugat.

Listened to the Christmas episode on the way back from visiting relatives during the holidays. A great way to spend 2 hours on the road!

During this week's aural expedition, we heard a swing full of Lymans, some early jungle jazz by the Duke, electronic exotica from Melbourne musician Chick Vekters ... and finished up with some crime jazz and Italian cocktail lounge!

During this week's broadcast, we experimented with some unusual time signatures and prepared piano sounds - ahead of a range of latin rhythms, early swing and tropical grooves. We then pushed our stereo systems into overdrive, before some gripping crime jazz and accordion tracks.

Here's a link to hear it again:
