You'll cha cha all the way with an all new Christmas special from The Retro Cocktail Hour. It's two hours of swinging bachelor pad tunes, crooner classics, over-stimulated stereophonic pop and tiki tunes for the season. This year we've got songs by Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee and Louis Armstrong; Billy May's insane "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo"; the ultra rare Christmas jazz classic "The Swingin' Seasons"; a cool Yule with Edd "Kookie" Byrnes; a scratchy old 45 called "The Toy Parade" (otherwise known as the Leave It To Beaver theme); plus news tunes by Project: Pimento, the Barry Gemso Experience, Tiki Joe's Ocean and Jaymz Bee's Royal Jelly Orchestra.
