quote by Chad Smith

I graduated high school in 1989, and there was no alternative rock radio, and there wasn't really good college radio you could get on a car stereo.

I listen to KCRW in the car and Pandora radio, which I stream through the stereo from my iPhone. I've been listening to everything from Caribou to Conway Twitty. If I'm going on a longer car ride, I'll download some podcasts.
