Modcast #305: For Tiki Oasis 2014 - Like, The Unofficial Beat-Tiki Mix Man

I've got a special treat for you this week: you don't have to listen to my scratchy voice. Instead, in honor of Tiki Oasis 2014 coming up in San Diego in a couple of weeks, DJ Ken from the Shingles has compiled a really great mix and there are some real gems in here. Tiki Oasis' theme this year is beat-tiki, so you know the tracks on this show are going to be super hip.

Listen now!
