Cruisin' Route 66 :  America's Main Street

   
Author: Readio Theatre 

For three generations of travelers, Route 66 was the highway that linked America together.  Stretching from Grant Park to the Pacific Ocean, this remarkable highway winds its way through eight states and ends at the Santa Monica freeway after 2,278 miles.  Experience pure nostalgia as you hear the stories of tourists, merchants, Okies, and GIs who traveled this mother road.  Meet the famous and the infamous.  Discover a snowstorm in Flagstaff, a blazing hot sun in the Mojave Desert, historical monuments in the Land of Lincoln, a cave in Missouri, Indian jewelry in New Mexico, and even a jackalope in Arizona.  This road has seen it all.
Review:   
"The energy and enthusiasm of the voice actors in this production as well as the various sites along Route 66 will encourage listeners to get in their cars and hit the road. Both a history and a travel guide, this production provides listeners with many of the rich elements that have made Route 66 an American icon, including its strange attractions, curiously themed hotels, and of course, classic road signs. Though some depictions of Native American culture seem dubious at best, the use of sound effects, a musical score, and a variety of voices to reflect the different travelers along the route makes for an enjoyable listen for young and old."
