Sometimes just hopping in the car and listening to your favorite songs is the ultimate escape. So any song that mentions cars or driving seem to automatically make you want to take a trip, says Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Radio‘s Rachel Steele, who loves just being able to leave the stresses of everyday life at home.
In her 20s, Steele said she and her sister used to road trip between Cleveland and Chicago quite a bit. One time when they were pulled over on the highway, and the officer asked why she was speeding, she says she was completely honest and told him “I was listening to Life in the Fast Lane and lost track of my speed. He said ‘You’re lucky I’m an Eagles fan,'” and let her off with a warning. “It was classic,” she says.
Both rock ‘n’ roll and the open road give you a sense of freedom, and that’s what Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Radio celebrates.
