Larry king of tiki

This is the best tiki podcast and gets in depth interviews with all the interesting personalities in the tiki and Polynesian pop world. Very entertaining.

Fantastic show

As a retail district manager, I am constantly driving in my car and this show is a lifesaver! Adrian is so down to Earth and easy going that I almost feel like I want to hug him like a friend if I were to meet him! Whether he is talking about Tiki, his kids, his cat, his favorite hamburger joint, whatever- he is able to make conversation interesting again. Love this podcast!
