When it comes to holding a party in your swank pad you want it to go off with out a hitch, this week Kramer stops by to talk about a movie where it all goes wrong..The Party staring Peter Sellers. This is one of those films that you will laugh so much you will cry and forevermore will have quotes and scenes etched in your memory. My favourite part of the film is when Peter Sellers manages to lose his slip on shoe,and ofcourse we can't forget Birdy Num Num!
Movie Critic Kramer has some interesting facts to share about the Party with us, and we have news on how to win a copy of my book Koop Koopers Cocktail Nation The Interviews and I'll let you know about a cool video series on you tube to check out.

one of my favourite places in the world is New York city. Sadly I am too young to have been caught in the whirl wind of excitement that the big apple provided back in the fifties and sixties, but I can go there in my mind with the large number of songs written about the big apple.
So this week its an all New York show as we take a trip in the time machine of our minds visiting the Rockefeller centre, central park, the Chrysler building and the Empire State Building and all those marvellous places from the city that never sleeps

I've always loved parties, big parties, little parties, swank parties.
To me it's the expectation of wonderful stories and friendships strengthened by the occasion.
New friends and old friends coming together.

My favourite time is late night, when the noise of the city settles down to a a dull roar, the phone doesn't ring and the night goes on forever.
the tinkling of piano jazz on the hi fi fills the background void and thinking becomes more clear, work gets done, thoughts are formed and ideas generated
This week on the snow we talk to a man by the name of Harvey Jordan who has an incredible story about a theme park that never got built.
Some amazing mad men news about a pending lawsuit from a sixties model who's image was used on the show plus the best lounge and exotica from across the globe.

Sometimes the modern world can be too much, often it's not just the painful pop culture that can grind you to a pulp with its incessant screeching like finger nails down a chalkboard. Often you can want to get away from it all, to get into that time machine of your mind....the best way, movies, music and books.
Tonight we head back to 1967 to talk loungin bachelor pad movies with Kramer. I've got an amazing doco to tell you about plus the best classic and new lounge from across the globe.
