What’s on your playlist?

So we all get pretty pissed off while driving and the radio stations just don’t fit our needs. The same five songs are replayed every hour, there are way too many Christian rock stations, top 40 bands pretty much run the radio world, and there are not enough stations for alternative, indie, or folk type of music. Also, lets face it, the radio doesn’t get songs fast enough.

“Oh hey listeners, here’s Adele’s NEW SONG ‘Someone Like You!’”

Um… no Mr. Radio Personality that song came out last year. Good try though.

(Change the station…)

I’m always trying to find ways around the radio, especially on long drives. My iPod battery dies way too fast, along with my phone. At the same time, I hate carrying 100 different CDs in my Jeep. But to cure the heartache and frustration for a short time, here is one of my newest driving playlists. No it’s not Frat music, or anything the radio would ever play, but I love it and so should you.
