Carolyn’s in-studio guest on the show this week is singer, songwriter piano man, raconteur and storyteller extraordinaire, Geoffrey Leigh Tozer. His style incorporates the smoothness of Sinatra, the gritty humor of Tom Waits and the sly metaphors of Raymond Chandler.
As the creator of Swanktown, a fictional hipsterville inhabited by a group of fascinating characters who gather nightly at a cocktail lounge where you can get “a martini so cold you can ice skate on it.” You can visit Swanktown weekly on Geoffrey’s radio show on Sirius titled “Sly Crooner of Swanktown.” Congratulations to he show, as it is just about to air its 150th weekly episode.
