Show 52: Choo Choo

Trains (sans Thomas) are what’s happening on this edition of the Treasure Ivan Show. We open with Jerry Garcia’s rendition of “Freight Train” and close with Bob Dylan singing “This Old Man.” Little Feat’s Lowell George will be heard performing “Two Trains” somewhere in the middle of the program. There are story records about trains by Ed Asner, Burl Ives, and Tom Glazer. Is this any way to treat a toddler? We say yes, and his mama and papa and grandparents too.
