The city of Altoona has a rich history, but did you know that history also includes music? Herman Nagel and Jim Daski spent 10 months researching Altoona's musical past. And, they put their findings into a book, to preserve it for future generations. They have titled the book "The Altoona Scrapbook of Musical Memories"! On today's show, Dawn interviewed the men about their book that chronicles music (jazz, big band, rock n' roll and dance) from the year 1900 to the year 2000.
If you'd like a copy of the musical scrap book, call the Blair County Genealogical Society in Hollidaysburg. The number is: 814-696-3492. You can also email them at: email@example.com
