Retro Radio Show


Holiday Cocktail, Vol. 1

Hello everybody, hi all! This is Karel and radio Manzerock is on the air!

Since rock 'n' roll received a recognition in the 1950s Europe, I decided to choose some songs and instrumentals with a rockin' flavour. Some of the songs were already aired in "Music for Sunday Date" compilations, but most of them not.

Henry Cording, Janice Peters,Van Wood, Odd Gisløy, Magali Noël — all of them are here and many more...
