Thanks for helping out with the time differences, Hamo. These can be confusing at the best of times!

Please note they might change from 1 Oct, when we head into "Daylight Saving" or Summer time.


Looks like these are times for the next month, until the US goes back to Standard Time on November 5.

3-5 PM Pacific DST
4-6 PM Mountain DST
5-7 PM Central DST
6-8 PM Eastern DST

Thanks for the update, Hamo!

Last day of school holidays and when 8yo Calypso Cordie asked to keep me company in the studio, it didn't occur to me she might end up stealing the show

Here's a link to the audio archive and playlist

As mentioned during the broadcast, if you'd like to help the people of Puerto Rico and other communities devastated by Hurricane Maria, independent charity watchdog https://www.charitynavigator.org is a great place to start.

With Halloween and Mexican "Día de Muertos" celebrations coming up - we started with some dark exotica, then moved through samba rhythms, beat jazz - and finished up with Caribbean cocktails and bongos!

If you like Sun Ra or mid-century exotica, then you can't afford to miss this week's interview with space age music historian and WFMU radio presenter Irwin Chusid!

Here it is:

Hey Tropical Island Swingers! I started this week's jungle holiday with some mid-century exotica, then embarked on a south sea island cruise, before featuring some of my favourite 2017 releases and a couple of sneaky Christmas classics!

Hey There, Tikiphiles!

I launched into this week's broadcast with some hard-hitting jungle jazz, latin rhythms and crazy Hammond ... before settling down with a glass of prosecco and wishing "Happy Birthday" to the king of the jungle vibraphone, Arthur Lyman!

And while you're there, don't forget to catch up on my Esquivel 100th birthday spectacular from the 19th of January!

Mahalo Nui Loa - thanks, Bam Bam!

For those who missed it - I recently celebrated my 150th radio broadcast, dedicating the first hour to Mid Century Exotica:

Then last Friday, I played a rare private pressing recorded by Bing Crosby for Trader Vic ... and was joined in the studio by Noelani from Melbourne's Nuholani Polynesian dance community - to chat about Hawaiian hula, music and culture.

Haven’t been able to listen live recently, so I’ve been catching up. I really enjoyed the Esquivel show, and Bing’s song for Trader Vic highlighted last week was a real treat. Also, I love Bert Kaempfert’s entire “A Swinging Safari” album, so I was excited to hear “Market Day.”

Congrats on 150 shows!

This week's programme started with some dark jungle voodoo, before celebrating Les Baxter's birthday, picking up the pace with an "incredible" new crime suite, then an interview with the mid-century tiki artist Derek Yaniger.

Here's a link, in case you missed it:

There's always plenty of action in the Ports of Paradise and the last few weeks have been no exception

If you missed any of the broadcasts, you can stream up to 6 months worth of programs from our Audio Archive:

http://pbsfm.org.au/portsofparadise

In additional to an eclectic array of midcentury classics, you might be interested in the following:

30 March >> Interview with tiki trailblazers Jumpin' Josh Collins and Barbara Blaze, who are hosting a series of wild tropical rooftop parties here in Melbourne.

20 April >> Interview with sonic explorer Mike Cooper, who has been creating ambient electronic exotica over the last 15 years - using looped exotica samples, bird calls and Hawaiian steel guitar.

Whoops! I haven't posted here in a while - but if you like the show, there's a new episode added to the PBS audio archive every week

Kicked off this week's broadcast with a track from Frank Hunter's fabulous "White Goddess", before trekking through an exotic lounge to the Land of the Rising Sun and a spectacular Egyptian epic

Here's a link to the audio archive and playlist
