A broad and varied slice of music history
A huge chunk of my exotica knowledge comes from listening to this podcast. Mark is steeped deeply in exotica, but also ventures to related genres, such as calypso, spy, soundtracks and easy listening. Not everything he plays is a winner, but it's always fascinating.
Great Tiki music collection and commentary
So happy that you’re back! Cheers to Digitiki!🍹
So glad you’re back!!!
