Cocktail Nation Show 2 Playlist
What a week, after the debut of Cocktail Nation I have been overwelmed by the degree of interest the world over.
Thank you so much for embracing this new show. I always felt that we could do with another show to play Lounge.
It was with satisfaction that I went to air last week opening my brand new Rode Microphone in my newly built studios perched on high in the Penthouse Suite in Sydney's CBD. Another wonderful show lined up. Here's the play list for show two which goes to air friday night for those in the US and Saturday Morning for The Aussies. See you then...Stay Hep

Well, after a long time planning and buying some decent studio equipment I can finally announce that my lounge music podcast will hit the air this month.
It's taken a while to get it together but I am proud to say that the show, which will be called "The Cocktail Nation" will play a mixture of old and new lounge music with interviews and information about the current lounge/retro scene across the world.
It will be a weekly show broadcast from my Sydney Penthouse and it will be one hour long. I'll shoot you some more details as soon as it is all locked in.
At this stage this will be the official website of the show so I'd be very keen to get your feedback and requests.
