Atomic Age Cocktail Party

Bongo Madness (1003)

Atomic Age logo with an illustration of a set of bongo drums

On the program this time, we celebrate bongo music. During the Atomic Age, bongos had a moment being associated with beatniks and jazz coffee houses, but it was much more than that. We have lots of great tunes featuring this percussion instrument including a set featuring the man called Mr. Bongo, Jack Costanzo.
