This week, we’re bringing the heat with some "Exciting Exotica." Music that was meant to take you to imagined far-off lands. Paradises where life is hot and steamy. These could be lush jungles or tempting tropical islands or any other magical place outside the everyday. We’ll hear from Yma Sumac, Frank Hunter and His Orchestra, Les Baxter, Don Ralke, and many more!
