PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
A-Train
A-Train
Hosted by Lisa Garvey
Sunday 8:00 am

Lisa Garvey brings music and the stories behind the songs to life. She is a living liner note with encyclopedic knowledge of music. Her impeccable taste and vast radio experience means you should get ready for a musical journey on Sunday mornings. Each weekend, Listeners will take the A Train on a fast-paced trip into the heart and soul of music as Lisa fuses together the best of jazz, soul and rhythm and blues with interesting tales from the sessions, musicians and personalities behind the music.

Lisa Garvey has spent more than 25 years in radio. "As she smoothly transitions from one musical style to the next informing and engaging listeners as she goes, Lisa is responsible for a high wire act, juxtaposing musical styles into a fusion that creates new fans for long-ago tunes and brings back memories for musicians and styles that can't be auto-tuned."

Whether she is telling a story about James Jamerson's incredible bass technique that to this day bass players try to mimic, or transitioning from a Miles Davis classic to a Walter Wolfman Washington tune with a similar vibe, you'll learn more about music and love more about music every time you listen. And with Lisa Garvey at the controls, you will take the A Train every Sunday as it becomes must-listen radio and a weekly destination.
