Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Robert Drasnin RIP

The Cocktail Nation — Episode #358 • May 24th, 2015
Robert Drasnin RIP

A change of plans for this weeks show. Originally we intended to bring you a comedy special but late last week news came through of the passing of Robert Drasnin, the movie and tv music composer and of course the man behind the ‘Voodoo’ and ‘Voodoo 2’ exotica albums. His good friend author Jeff Chenault will stop by to talk about Robert.

Also on the show, we talk about the difficulties in living a vintage life today and some suggestions as to how to get or maintain that authenticity.
