Salt Lake City, UT – Singers in Young@Heart chorus 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 documentary that's just been released on DVD. Fontaine and others join Doug to explain how Sonic Youth, Talking Heads and David Bowie have written the soundtrack of their "Golden Years." (Rebroadcast)
