As the sun rises, I’ll kick off the day at Wansford Station with a dazzling display with my 1940s WAAF Show, aptly titled “Straighten Up and Fly Right.” This fabulous show will have you tapping your feet and whisked away to an era filled with courage, resilience, and timeless tunes. But the excitement doesn’t stop there! At 1:30pm, I’ll transport you to the rocking 1950s with my show “Chantilly Lace,” a sensational showcase of melodies that will have you jiving and bopping along. Finally, at 3:30pm, prepare to be immersed in the nostalgia of the 1960s and 70s as I take you on a melodic journey with “Thank-you for the Music,” featuring iconic songs that defined an entire generation.
