Sing All Kinds Radio: “The Play a Train Song Show”

I missed doing last week’s show due to traveling, but it was nice to be back behind the glass at Crosstown Concourse this week.

This show was inspired by the Todd Snider song that leads things off. There are tons of good “train songs,” so this was a show that could have filled two or three hours easy. 

Next week I’m planning on the first of monthly “time travel” shows exploring individual years: The 1980 Show. 

Here’s this week’s show:
