Pump Up The Volume

I have mentioned before that my taste in music is very eclectric. I have Sirius/XM Satellite radio in my car and in my home and virtually never listen to anything else. Commercial free. My favorite channels are Love, The Bridge, Classic Vinyl, NPR, XM PR and Outlaw Country. The highest volume my radio will go to is 50 and that is where it stays.

I chunk of ice hit the front of my car near Idaho Springs right after I bought it in 2004 and it took out my air conditioning condenser. Living where I live you never need air conditioning. We are naturally air conditioned . But when I go to Denver or Boulder I have to roll down all of my windows and open my sun roof to stay cool. With my volume at 50 everyone gets to hear free music while I still have to pay for it.

Imagine if you will a nearly 70 year old former police officer with extraordinarily long white hair driving down the road with his car radio blaring Led Zeppelin, the Eagles or Townes Van Zant. Quite a picture.
