East Side, West Side

East Side West Side

From the Bowery to Brooklyn to Broadway to the Bronx…the sidewalks of New York is the topic of the morning, our Gotham theme this Friday on community radio from the Left Coast looking east. Join Dave Stroud for a handsome cab journey through the past century of iconic sounds where the heartbeat of the melting pot of America sings. You’ll be treated to some early Broadway musical samples, the imaginings of West Side Story, the hotel orchestras, and vocal elaborations from Darin, Sinatra, Ella, an Cohan. There will be no exclusion here as late century rock and vocal groups as we’ll hear from The Ad Libs, The Drifters, Garland Jeffreys and others. New York has always been a mirror into the soul of America and has always represented its humanity as a visit to any street in Manhattan would reveal; and its music is, in turn, a reflection itself of that humanity. Join us.
