Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge August 28, 2019

On this week’s Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge radio show we took a decidedly determined detour from our usual Tiki music to honor the occasion of the Burning Man festival, taking place this week in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, and where this radio show aired for the first time in 2002 on Radio Free Burning Man.

Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge show is broadcast every Wednesday, 5-6 pm Eastern Standard Time (2-3 pm on the West Coast and 10-11 GMT in Europe) at http://www.radiofairfax.org. Radio Fairfax also can be heard on Tune In Radio at tunein.com, and streamed on smartphones by downloading the Tunein app. It also can be streamed on Roku and Google TV at: http://tinyurl.com/3uqfsz9

Past shows from this year are now available to listen to in their entirety at: https://www.mixcloud.com/Flashfriend/

  4. “Fireside Eye” was composed, arranged and conducted by John Williams of Star Wars fame for the 1960 to ’62 television series, Checkmate, and is finely furnished on the historical document: Jazz on Film…Crime Jazz! spotlighting the talents of Jimmy Rowles on Piano.
