Retro Shopping Volume 2

Shopping Spree

Jun 17th 2007 by Christopher

Compilation It is summer and hot again. Why not return to the nice temperature controlled environment inside the malls one more time? Browse all the exotic goods from all over the world, walking up and down the isles in a dreamy waltz while the soft music echoes through the muzak system and then grab a bite to eat at one of the convenient placed coffee shops. This compilation is the continuation of my Retro Shopping series. The first one was released in July last year and became very popular among the Ultra Swank visitors. The second one features the same kind of happy, cheerful, instrumental easy going music that was played in malls during the 50s ( continue reading... )

The Cocktail Nation: Kenny Sasaki

Episode 323    Aug 17th 2014

We are in Tokyo Japan to talk to Kenny Sasaki from the Tiki Boys about his latest release called Bird Island. I’ve got a great little story about Mel’s Diner for you, and it turns out other radio shows have been talking about me so we will play some audio from that and find out what people have been saying about me. News as well about a bio pic about a legend of the sixties, Russ Meyer and you will be surprised who wants the role and of course the death of Lauren Bacall.

I am pretty sure you will recognize some of them – especially if you are a movie buff. The compilation clocks in ( continue reading... )


Compilation Here is the compilation that started everything. It was actually compiled a few months before I started this website back in September 2005 and I decided to keep the name Ultra Swank for the site.

Compilation Since many of you have requested my previous two volumes of “Space Age Lounge”, I have decided to share them with you here. First off is volume 2, which is called Red Carpet Ride. It is a tribute to the swank Hollywood premieres and jet set lifestyle of the 1960s. The music is mostly soft and easy going with lots of strings, vibes and flutes. ( read more... )

Compilation As hinted in a previous post, here is my latest custom made compilation. The theme for this one is jet travel in the late 60s / early 70s – which basically means lots of delicious strings, brass and funky bass lines in every form. This is the kind of music you would listen to when jet-setting around the globe first class in a Boeing 747. ( read more... )

Compilation Since it is summer and very hot outside (at least in the northern hemisphere), many people prefer to stay indoors in a temperature-controlled environment. So why not spend some time at your local mall? This is a exclusive custom made compilation for this website, to celebrate the mood and feel of the American shopping malls of the 1950s and 1960s. This compilation has everything a ( read more... )
