Noon Edition

An All-American Road Trip

We're travelling down Route 66 to explore the music from different U.S. States!

It's the week of the Fourth of July, so this week on the program, I'll be celebrating America by taking an All-American road trip through the Great American Songbook. This hour, we'll travel around the country as we explore songs about different states. Coming up, we'll hear from Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, and more, as they perform standards like "Moonlight In Vermont," "Georgia On My Mind," "California Here I Come," and "Back Home Again In Indiana." You'll also hear a few more rare state songs, like "Just A Little Bit South Of North Carolina," "You're In Kentucky," and the clever Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz tune "Rhode Island Is Famous For You."
