Traveling Songs for the Holiday Weekend

This weekend we will take time on Monday to salute our veterans.  More Americans than ever will be taking to the highways and Those Were the Days on Saturday night will provide a soundtrack for those traveling or dreaming about moving.  There will be a bunch of songs that inspire you to go faster down the road.  Please be careful and don't get a ticket!  Some of my favorite moving songs include:  Rockin Down the Highway-Doobie Brothers,  Driving My Life Away-Eddie Rabbitt,  Born to Run-Bruce Springsteen,  Ramblin' Man-Allman Brothers,  Drive My Car-Beatles,  Holiday Road-Lindsay Buckingham,  Cars-Gary Numan,  Born to by Wild-Steppenwolf,  Take It Easy-Eagles,  and I Can't Drive 55-Sammy Hagar.  Perhaps you can think of a favorite open road song?  Let me know the tune that you would like to hear Saturday night when I host Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and  

Thanks to our friends in the 608 and beyond that listen to our show.  It is so cool to talk with people that enjoy the same music.  This is something that we can all agree on.  We have some cool shows lined up for the future.  This weekend marks the unoffical start of the summer season and I invite you to join us for some cool tunes.
