Raised on the Radio

Because growing up on 70s television didn't kill me. It just made me who I am today.

In my search for the perfect Martini Lounge Christmas Playlist for our listeners I happened upon an artist I thought was pretty cool, his name is Geoffrey Leigh Tozer. He’s not ultra-famous, but he’s pretty darn good. His Christmas tunes are not on YouTube so this iTunes link will have to do. Also feel free to check him out over at his website Swanktown. He’s a story-teller and a music maker, if you like, won’t you buy it on iTunes? He’s just a guy, sharing his awesome music with us. Here’s a taste:

*update! I contacted Geoffrey and look what he made just for us! A YouTube video of Deck Martinis With Green Olives!
