Salt Lake City, UT – Singers in Young@Heart choir say their musical tastes run from Opera to Stage Musicals to Frank Sinatra. But members like 87-year-old Len Fontaine are still adventurous enough to take on punk anthems like the Ramones "I Wanna Be Sedated." The choir is the subject of a new documentary - and they're in Salt Lake tonight. Fontaine and others join Doug to explain how Sonic Youth, Talking Heads and David Bowie have written the soundtrack of their "Golden Years."
