Today we chat with Steve "The Madman" Huffman. This one is a "hang-out" episode, the kind of episode I enjoy recording the most, in which we just sit down in the Desert Oasis Room and "talk story" about stupid fun stuff like Egg Yolk Mohawks, Pan Am Parties, James Spader Movies and more!

On this episode we hang out in The Breezeway with Spike Marble and Shorty Poole of Hulabilly band, The Hula Girls. The Hula Girls combines the music of Rockabilly and old Hawaii to form their own unique kind of sound.

Bosko was one of the very first urban archaeologists of Tiki and Polynesian Pop starting back in the mid 1980's. His story is unique in that, acting as a "lone wolf" he really had no influences other than himself and what he thought was "cool." He also might have been the first person in the revivalist era to build a home tiki bar space back in the early 1990's, the Kapu Tiki Room, which inspired his design of Taboo Cove, the first real Tiki bar in the revivalist era, once located at The Venetian in Las Vegas. He was also one of the first to start a modern day tiki mug collection and from what we can gather, the first person to start making tiki mugs in the revivalist era.

If you like hearing stories of what all these old Tiki and Polynesian Pop palaces were like before they were shut down, the efforts he went through to save some of the historic pieces in many of them and what it was like to start his now thriving Tiki and mug making business then I think you will enjoy this episode. To see what he is doing today or pick up some of his art, tikis, mugs or paintings go to tikibosko.com.

Imagine a small, square, unmarked warehouse building on an industrial street with a single, gated door. It's the speakeasy of all speakeasys because when you enter that gated door, guess what? You're now standing in a small, square, unmarked warehouse building surrounded by cardboard boxes and folding tables. Now imagine, from there, being led behind a black curtain that empties into a dark hallway. And your adventure begins. This is the Lost Spirits Distillery tour. You'll get on a boat. Yes, a real boat, floating on real water, that docks at 3 ports. And you'll get to taste their excellent rum and whiskey along the way.

32 Mike Buhen Jr & Sr of Tiki-Ti

On this episode we speak with Mike & Mike, Jr & Sr, owners of the legendary Tiki-Ti in Los Angeles, California. I first started going to Tiki-Ti somewhere around 1995 or so. It was a great place to grab a strong and tasty tropical drink on my way out to a night of "clubbing" in Hollywood. Back then Ray Buhen was still bartending, the mixology legend who opened it back in 1961.

Ray was one of the original bartenders at Don the Beachcomber, documented as the very first tiki bar opening in 1934 just after prohibition was lifted in the US, which was largely credited for creating many popular tropical cocktails. After getting his start there, he found his way to such notable locations as the 7 Seas, the Luau, Christian's Hut, the Palms, the Dresden and many more eventually settling at his own bar, the Tiki-Ti. Today the Tiki-Ti is run by his son and grandson, Mike Buhen Jr & Sr, who we talk to in this episode.

Jordan T is one of my musical heroes. I've been a big fan of his since I first heard his #1 hit single "Sunset Tonight" on Island Radio back in 2014 and started following him on Instagram and eventually became Facebook friends with him. Over the years, I saw several of his shows here on the mainland, which eventually lead up to this day. I reached out to him for an interview and he graciously opened up some time for me and we recorded this from his green room at the House of Blues in Anaheim. Jordan was gracious, friendly and accommodating and I really enjoyed hanging out with him.

He recently released a new single entitled, "Bridges with the Vibes" which can be found on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/album/id1229778595
For more of his great music stop by JordanTmusic.com and be sure to follow him on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter: @jordantmusic

Lastly, he'll be playing another show with Sammy J at The Roxy in Hollywood, California this coming Saturday, May 13th. Come down and check it out -- I'll be there too!
