Chapter 71: Born To Be Wild

60s classic rock

I’ve had two major radio-devotee phases in my life - first as a high schooler obsessed with KROQ, then immediately post-college, when I got a car with neither CD deck nor aux cord, so became a daily listener of LA’s classic rock station 100.3 The Sound. Classic rock works well in an album format but brilliantly as radio; it’s high energy, sonically diverse, perfect driving music. These classic rock radio staples have their spots secured in the canon, but just in case you needed a reminder: these songs rule and will never die.
