KPR’s Retro Cocktail Hour turns 20, almost old enough to drink a martini

The Underground Martini Bunker is real and in use every Saturday night on the "Retro Cocktail Hour."

By Dave Sparks / KPR Volunteer
“At the end of the first show, I remember thinking ‘Wow, that seemed like a lot of fun. Let’s see what happens!” Now, 20 years and 700-plus episodes later, Darrell Brogdon’s memory of hosting the first Retro Cocktail Hour on Kansas Public Radio is just as accurate—with a few bullet points.

Creepy Crawlers Invade in the Next Cinema a Go-Go

Our latest Cinema a Go-Go crawls into Liberty Hall with a pair of classic ‘50s sci-fi extravaganzas ­— The Crawling Eye and The Creeping Unknown. Both based on British TV serials, these low budget masterpieces have it all — giant tentacled eyeballs, large creeping blobs from outer space, headless corpses, oozy slime trails and other fun stuff. It’s just the thing for a family night at the movies. 

KPaRtist - Janey Greene

"Three Red Chimneys" by Janey Greene

The latest in featured KPaRtists is Janey Greene, a Baldwin City resident, who uses plenty of color and has a "sort of off-beat view of the world around me." 

"Painting is a joyful experience for me that I hope reflects in my work. I love bold, vibrant colors and interesting patterns. I use acrylic paint because it seems to best suit my style, which is modern and abstract with a touch of whimsy. My family lovingly tells me that the name of my company, 'OFF THE WALL,' matches my personality."
