Night Train Memories: Sounds of the Cities (Music)

http://www.fcac.org/radio-fairfax

Night Train Memories: Sounds of the Cities Trains in the night…Where are they going? Trains and music are joined together every time the Night Train pulls into another city for a few hours. The music is the sounds of the cities: urban vocal groups, from the 50s through early 60s, with occasional new material as well, with your engineer, Squire. Some refer to it as Doo-Wop music, but it’s more than that. No matter if you’re not familiar with the songs, Squire explains everything. Every week a new train ride and new records to hear: Classics, favorites, obscurities, and some mega-rarities.
