It's Benham Jones in for Corny O'Connell. We're going to play some underground music on this anniversary of the opening of New York City's first subway line. On this date in 1904 New Yorkers began riding around in a hole in the ground, and ever since there have been songs about it. Share a favorite track about the metro and we'll map out a set.

Hear your requests weekdays after 9 a.m.
Today's set:

  • Amy Ray "Subway"
  • Petula Clark "Don't Sleep on the Subway"
  • The New York Dolls "Subway Train"
  • Tom Waits "Downtown Train"

Weekdays at Noon
