Atomic Age logo with an illustration of the Colosseum in Rome. Text reads Episode 1052 Evening in Roma

On The Atomic Age Cocktail Party this time, it's an “Evening in Roma!” Tunes about Rome and Italy and other Italian songs that made their ways to American hi-fi’s during the Atomic Age. We spotlight Italian-American crooners as well as others who brought the spirit of Old Italy to Atomic Age music. We feature music from Jerry Vale, Buddy Greco, Sophia Loren, and even Annette Funicello.
