Modcast #355: Jetset Swingin'

It's time to get easy, mod easy, with another episode of Mr. Suave's Swingin' Cocktail Lounge. That's right, it's time to explore the lounge side of mod with the now sound of the space-age, jetset, bachelor pad. Call it what you will: cocktail music, tiki music, go-go music, exotica, space-age pop, jetset or now sound, it's all lounge music to me. As promised here's a couple of cool websites you're going to want to check out. First, a good read is The Strange World of Library Music. And one of the finest lounge music resources anywhere on the planet is the Space-Age Pop Music page.
