                                          Detour Radio

Adds a new radio station with over 110 songs from the *Golden Age of Music. All lore friendly tracks. This is just continuous music with no DJ or commercials added. A craftable radio is available in the workshop so your settlers can enjoy as well. The new station uses radio frequency 87.0 and will conflict with any other radio mods using the same frequency. XBOX and PC versions also available at Bethesdas site.

I hope you enjoy.

This is my first time uploading one of my other mods to Nexus. Please let me know if it isn't working so I can attempt to fix it. Currently, it's working fine on Bethesdas site on both PC and Xbone (PS4 not available for obvious reasons).

  32. The Grand Old Rag (The Grand Old Flag)   -   Billy Murray   *   The original lyric for this perennial George M. Cohan favorite came, as Cohan later explained, from an encounter he had with a Civil War veteran who fought at Gettysburg. The two men found themselves next to each other and Cohan noticed the vet held a carefully folded but ragged old flag. The man reportedly then turned to Cohan and said, "She's a grand old rag." Cohan thought it was a great line and originally named his tune "You're a Grand Old Rag." So many groups and individuals objected to calling the flag a "rag," however, that he "gave 'em what they wanted" and switched words, renaming the song "You're a Grand Old Flag".   — Library of Congress     (I personally see this as one of the most patriotic songs ever recorded as it covers everything America, bad or good however you view it.

"There is no popularly recognized "golden age of music," so that's not exactly an informative description."    -   hanageboubounosuke

*The Golden Age
 (1940s to 1960s)

The formula for the Golden Age musicals reflected one or more of four widely held perceptions of the "American dream":
That stability and worth derives from a love relationship sanctioned and restricted by Protestant ideals of marriage; that a married couple should make a
moral home with children away from the city in a suburb or small town; that the woman's function was as a homemaker and mother;
and that Americans incorporate an independent and pioneering spirit or that their success is self-made.  - Wikipedia
