We are building a city through songs right now on My Lost Treasure. Now that we have a switching yard, we can have trains. This train song was always a favorite of mine. I love The Monkees.  Today's song was their first hit.  It was written and produced by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.

I've been listening to this song for more years than I care to admit. But it wasn't until recently that I found out what the song is about. It's about a young man going off to fight in Vietnam.  Of course, it makes perfect sense to me now. I can't believe I never figured that out on my own.  I saw it a couple of years ago on a television interview.

I hope you are having a great weekend. Boris and I will be back on the air tomorrow morning at six. And we will be kicking off a brand new contest with your chance to win a very cool prize package. Tune in for all the details. Thanks for listening!
