Home House Drinks Residents Events Podcasts
Many people have asked about the music played at the Lothario Lounge. In an effort to expand my horizons,
I have decides to create a podcast based on the music heard at the parties.
This will be an all-music podcast (no gum flappin) of mostly 50's, 60's and 70's.
If it proves to be popular, I can add features like gum flappin, sponsors, and interviews
with whomever wants to be interviewed.
Perhaps I can even learn what I am doing since I have never done anything like this.

 

Podcast #6 - 04/29/2014 - The Hippest Trader Joe's Soundtrack Ever

The next time you head out to buy exotic pasta or low-cost bananas, try popping this podcast into your player.
Not that I have anything against their current soundtrack, but I feel they could use a little more edge along with some kitsch.
This podcast features plenty of unknown retro discoveries, surf, wailin' guitars, and a little bit of the usual whackiness thrown in.

Podcast #5 - 02/10/2014 - Tools of the Lothario: Seductive Sounds

The Lothario has an arsenal of tools to achieve his objective. These tools are designed to appeal to the senses
of his (or her) intended conquest. A cool pad (sight), a few cocktails (taste), Animal Musk/Hai Karate (smell), and finally,
a seductive soundtrack (sound) are what it takes to get that "come-hither gaze". In honor of Valentines Day, here is a selection
of tunes which should get those engines revving. Listen to it with someone you love.

Podcast #4 - 01/07/2014 - Gilligan's Radio

When the castaways were stranded on the island, their only source from the outside world was their radio (along with the incredibly relevant pieces of news that floated up on the shore.) The music played on Gilligan's radio was a mix of Go-Go, Surf, and Bongo Beats, with a little wackiness thrown in. This podcast represents the radio and it is great background music for baking a coconut cream pie, doing the laundry for rich folk who never do an ounce of work, or fighting off bloodthirsty cannibals portrayed by ethnic-looking bit actors.
