This week, The Atomic Age Cocktail Party, it’s Percussion Exotique. It's exciting exotica that came out during the hi-fi era that was filled to the brim with all sorts of wild percussion. Sounds that help transport you to another place—whether it be tropical jungles or other far-off lands. We’ll hear from Augie Colón, Frank Hunter & His Orchestra, Martin Denny, Robert Drasnin, and more.
