Show 106: Quiet Village vs. Flamingo

The second in a series of shows called "Quiet Village vs. ?"
once again contrasts about 10 different versions of the ultimate exotica classic
with 10 versions of another popular exotica tune.

This instalment pits Quiet Village against Flamingo,
and also serves as my annual Martin Denny Birthday show...
Many more traditional versions of QV on this show compared to last month
(including 5 versions by Martin Denny, the original by Les Baxter,
and several others... and, of course, an equal number of versions of Flamingo). 

Join us in the chatroom
on April 11 at  9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific.
