The Purple Bike Podcast with Karen Morgan

The Purple Bike Podcast with Karen Morgan

Pedal back to a simpler time when nobody wore a bike helmet but everybody had fun. Host Karen Morgan helps us remember how much fun we had on this groovy trip down memory lane. The Purple Bike Podcast covers four decades of nostalgia from 1975 to 2015: music, movies, television, current events and a few embarrassing hairstyles along the way. Why "The Purple Bike?" Karen got her first purple bike in 1975, a Huffy Rail with a sparkly banana seat and Malibu handlebars. She got her next purple bike in 2015, a Trek road bike with an uncomfortable racing seat. This podcast is all about the 40 years of life between those two purple bikes. So if you grew up in the 70s, 80s or even the 90s, this podcast is for you. Join us for a fun ride & just keep pedaling!
