Songs About Automobiles

08/13/11 8:00PM By Joel Najman

The actual "Hot Rod Lincoln" back in 1960. The car was owned by and pictured with Charlie Ryan, the singer who built the car and who wrote the song and who first recorded it.
Coinciding with the 54th annual Antique & Classic Car Show in Stowe, Vermont, Joel Najman's My Place program this week presents an hour of popular songs dealing with America's long running love affair with the Automobile. Featured is the rarely-heard original version of Hot Rod Lincoln by Charlie Ryan, as well as memorable automobile-related songs recorded by Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, LaVern Baker and others.
