Koop Kooper, the swank meister of the airwaves

A week ago, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Koop Kooper of Cocktail Nation, if you haven’t checked out his podcast and radio image2show, I suggest you hop right over and check it out, there’s a list of stations his show is available on and you can listen to back episodes on his website.

As you sit around an listen to his show, you can also thumb through his book of interviews. Included in the interviews are great chats with El Gato Gomez (one of my favorite artists on Facebook) Vic Flick, the man who created the 007 riff and Tom Tremelo Spy Fi, learn all about SPY Fi Music!


Cocktail Nation: The Interviews 2image3

From the Sydney Penthouse the Lounge Lothario has been working overtime putting in the long distance calls across the globe to find you the craziest cats of the retro scene along with the legends who cohabit the swank universe that is the Cocktail Nation.

In this edition the Lounge Leader talks magazines with Tiki Magazine founding father Nick Camara, art with El Gato Gomez and, most importantly, he explores the beginning of the scene with the rediscovery of the one and only Esquivel.

The archaeological dig is dug with Kooper discovering a canary by the name of Laurie Allyn who missed her initial fame train by seconds but now her name is on the lips of hepcats across the globe!

The Legends keep coming with manager to the stars Morris Diamond, Dean Martin Show producer Lee Hale and the Keeper of the Flame on the Big Island Jimmy Borges all add to another jam packed panorama of all things Lounge,

Created by the swank meister of über cool himself, Koop Kooper.
