Best Reason to Mix a Batch of Early Morning Martinis or Best Early Morning Hangover Remedy, 1995: 'The Lounge Show' With Jay Robillard, KOOP

Some of us never really hated our parents' music. Some of us secretly reveled in those snappy, pappy tunes by the likes of Ferrente & Teicher, 101 Strings, Sergio Mendez & Brasil 66. Jay Robillard forces the smoking jacket out of the closet and serves up a swizzling mix of easy-going (not easy listening) tunes. Like many of his compadre deejays at Austin's community radio station KOOP, he is an expert – nay! an academician – in his field of elegance and savoir vivre. The music of Nino Rota is the soundtrack to life, baby, and may any backlashers who debunk the Cocktail Nation forever fizzle in the embers of their lack of true spark: They probably think the best drinks come in a can.
