Having my "Martini in the Morning"

I know you’re all big mid-century fans out there and that usually includes a love of Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and many more – so what are you doing sitting there, you really need to tune into Martini In the Morning – it’s an online radio station just for lounge lizards (a great background to any mid-century house or business?).

I’m a geek and listen to music on the computer most of the time – Pandora or whatever – but this is nice with a bit of pleasant commentary. Oh by the way, be sure to check out the Martini recipes on the site too!

No, they’re not paying me – I really like it! Hop over and you will too! 🙂
