Retro Cocktail Hour






Kansas Public Radio's Retro Cocktail Hour is our weekly nod to the Space Age Pop revival. Here you'll find vintage recordings from the dawn of the Hi-Fi Era - imaginative, light-hearted (and sometimes light-headed) pop stylings designed to underscore everything from the backyard barbecue to the high-tech bachelor pad. Darrell Brogdon serves up two hours of incredibly strange music on Kansas Public Radio, so grab a cocktail shaker and join us for the Retro Cocktail Hour.

This Week's CD Giveaway:
