New York Out Loud: Subway Music

Subway at 42nd St Station, New York, NY Performance Today
2min 12sec : NYOL Radio Feature - Subway Music

For as long as there has been a subway system in New York, there have been musicians decorating it with sound. However, they haven't always been welcome. PT host Fred Child talks with subway historian Susie Tanenbaum about the shift from official bans, to official support for music underground.

In this short film, Fred Child heads underground to explore the history and importance of Subway music to the city.
