American Road Trip Talk

Neon in the Spotlight

American Road Trip Talk hosted by Foster Braun is a talk show that celebrates travel across the two-lane highways of North America. This unique broadcast is an extension of American Road Magazine. Join Foster Braun, Your host and our guide on the American Road Trip Talk Show. Starting in the 1920’s the art of neon lighting lit up American roadways and towns from coast to coast. In many ways it was a revolutionary as the digital artistry of today. Curiously, neon lighting made its way into the US from Europe by jumping to Los Angeles. So it’s fitting that the city of the angels is the home of the Museum of Neon Art and on this American Road TripTalk we’ll visit with Kim Koga, the museum’s director to find out about a national display of neon art at the beginnings of one of America’s great highways, Route 66.
