The holidays come a little early this year...
as we make room for a couple of special JohnT/Tothar crossover shows coming up in the next couple of weeks...

 
Sorry to subject you to more holiday stuff than you can stand... Maybe it'll all go down easier with a bowl of Mauna Loa Egg Nog Punch (see below)...
 
(...and following Thrifting for Tunes' hour-long lead-in of holiday crap, stick around for Tothar of The Beyondophonic Action Hour——who usually does his show remotely, like I do——hosting his show live from the Lux studio LA).

Show 92: Music for a Summer Luau

 
More new releases for summer 09!
 
This week: Music for a summer luau with new tunes by Le Maï Taï Orchestra, and a slew of Hawaiian, hapa hoale, steel guitar, and uke music!

The soundtrack of some of my earliest Tiki experiences (before my discovery of exotica)... Vacations at the Hawaiian Isle motel in Miami in the late 60s/early 70s... Dinner at the Kon Tiki in Montreal in the 70s... Music of the Islands by The Mauna Loa Islanders (and others) swiped from my dad's record collection...
 
Also, see below for one of Le Maï Taï Orchestra's favorites: the Aku Aku cocktail...
