Inside Angels Flight Station House: The Morning “Shiftkicker” and More…

At or near their outsets, I usually like to get my shifts at Angels Flight energized up and into cruise control with a musical selection that I’ve dubbed the “morning shiftkicker,” and sometimes I record it.

In this case there is that rather unique musical selection (starts with my intro at about the 14:00 mark for you skippers; far from my usual rousing classical or rock composition) and more, initially involving some of my first passengers of the day, including a family who upon arrival mentioned the son was doing a Boy Scout project involving the historic railway.

Of course that was enough to get me going imparting shards of its background. I think they all appreciated the information — I know I certainly enjoyed providing it.
