Ms. Retromodgirl: That album cover belongs in the Smithsonian. God, do I miss the atomic age. Thanks for the tip about the Retro Cocktail Hour. Thanks for the great Album list as well. What other era could be played to bossa nova or Hawaiian? -- Mykal

The atomic age was a great time period. I would donate some of these covers to local museums. Maybe you can create an exhibit for share some of your material.
