Atomic Age Cocktail Party

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (1049)

Atomic Age logo with an illustration of a plane, a train, and a group of cars. Text reads Episode 1049 Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

On the program this time, we take to the skies, ride the rails, and hit the open road. It’s a show filled with songs about Planes, Trains, and Automobiles! Tunes about people moving from place to place and the ways they get there. Songs about arrivals and departures. And often songs about separations and reunions. We’ll hear from Jeri Southern, Jack Sheldon, Louis Jordan, Bobby Troup, and more!
