Video 'Jonal' - #20

Mostly for fun

Driving with bored kids/'My Name Is Luka'

The theme music accompanying our 1987 nationwide tour was "Luka," also known (by us) as "My Name is Luka," which Kevin would begin rendering in his own inimitable way any time the travel seemed to drag. The day after the K4 Locomotive arrived at the Altoona RR museum (see previous Video Jonal), we drove to Johnstown for one more tour and the miles from one mile east of Ebensburg into the city was mosly accompanied by that highly stylized rendition. The recorded version has been added as a soundtrack to this video, Suzanne Vega's version borrowed from YouTube. And son Kev has long since emerged as something of a karaoke star at the San Jose clubs. Oh, and I hope you find the footage of the area from two decades ago worth seeing again.

Running time, 10 minutes, 30 seconds, "self-narrated."
