Over The Moon (1035)

Atomic Age logo with illustrations of the moon. Text reads Episode 1035 Over The Moon

On the program this time, we look up at the skies for songs from the hi-fi era inspired by the moon. The moon has always been an influence for art, but it gained special meaning during the space age with the race to land a person on its surface. On the show, we'll hear from Esquivel, Dinah Washington, Buddy Greco, The Out-Islanders, and many more.
