Some news for those fans of the Dr. Zarkov's Tiki Lounge radio show -- we have started posting complete shows for you to listen to on Mixcloud. Because we started to do this recently, we are feeling our way. Initially only shows from the beginning of this year are available, but if things go as smoothly as they have so far we will add last year's shows as well. Thanks to Tikitube for the suggestion that I check out Mixcloud. You can find the shows here: https://www.mixcloud.com/Flashfriend/

Thanks, Doc. Now that you’re on Mixcloud, I’ve been able to check out a couple of episodes: the most recent Oscars show and the January 3 Pop & Exotica Extravaganza. Good stuff.
