Music for Digital Kerouacs who are “on the road”

For those of  you using a push pin on a map at home, I’m going down to L. A. Monday.

The disk jockey will be playing Dave Dudley’s “Six Days on the Road”

Youtube automatically generated the song “People Are Crazy” (are they insinuating something about me?)

Naturally we gotta play Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again”

While we were listening to Comet Radio while staying in Kalgoorlie we heard them play Bobby Bare’s “500 miles from home.”  It seemed to us we were farther away than that.

One road song that most kids will never have heard of is Red Sovine’s “Phantom 309”

Sometimes you pick up new music while on the road.  While we were in Freo (Fremantle Western Australia), we learned about Seasick Steve.  It’s called “Started out with nothing” as in:  “I started out with nothing and I got most of it left . . . .”  (Ain’t that the truth?)

Of course, to get to Australia, you get there fastest if you fly.  So we will play Silver Wings

Good thing that “I love L. A.’
