(5 stars; 1 reviews)

Today (10 April 2011) marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the giants of exotica, in fact one of the creators of exotica, namely Mr Martin Denny. So on the show this week you'll be hearing the sultry sunlit sounds of Martin Denny as well as music by some of his proteges and some most interesting arrangements of some of his tunes. To fully appreciate this edition of the show, we recommend Bermuda shorts or grass skirt, a Hawaiian shirt or pair of judiciously placed pair of coconut shells and if you insist on wearing sandals, please, no socks. MC Zirconium tells us the first-a rule of Italian driving: what's-a behind me is not important.
