Route 66 News

“Ten Second News”

This song from Son Volt, circa 1995, was inspired by the now-abandoned Route 66 town of Times Beach, Mo., and the flood and resulting dioxin contamination that killed it.

The entire album, “Trace,” was inspired by a lot of road trips in the St. Louis region, and remains the best the band’s ever done. (Amazon download here.)
