      Without a doubt having a CB radio on the Bandit Run adds exponentially to the fun...I wouldn't leave home without one! Beyond that (for me), a decent sound system is next along with classic tunes.

      Prior to my first run in 2008, I replaced the failed, original Delco AM/FM in the '76 with a Custom AutoSound stereo and CD changer. I liked it so much, I ordered a similar set-up for my '73 but elected to add a USB port as well. I'm having a blast loading up my 32Gb flash drive with CDs I haven't played in years!

      Anyway, I find that each year I've been on a 'Run, a particular song seems to rise to the top of my play list. Here's what were on previous years:

      2007 (did not attend)
      2008 "Start Me Up"; Rolling Stones
      2009 "Kick Start My Heart"; Motley Crue
      2010 "Sweet Emotion", Aerosmith
      2011 (did not attend)

      This is my vote for 2012: http://www.yo...v=-BwKGFb0PgI

      What's running through your speakers?

      You might look into a radio shop adding that usb stuff so you can enjoy your tunes as you are running Bro!... Just saying... I ditched all my 8 tracks in the 75 so I could enjoy my tunes on my ipod as I moved down the road. ( BTW blame Shaker on pulling me into the 21st century with him!) lmao image lmao image lmao image

      Yes, the iPod with the FM transmitter works really well with a FM radio. Tune that FM to 88.1-88.7 and play till your heart's content.

      As far as songs... I had a couple picked out the other night but this darn site crashed before I could answer Tinman's calling...

      "Turn Up The Radio" may be my pick this year but the classics still reign down...

      "East B & D" will likely still be my fav...

      or "Life is a Highway".

      Loon... guess I'm showing my age again ashamed image ... I don't believe that I have heard of a single group you named...

      What ever happened to Jerry Reed, Waylon and Willie, and those guys... am I that old? Heck, when I grew up, we also listened to Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf, and the Young Rascals (who have likely turned 100 or over in their graves).

      Foo Fighters? Black Keys? I have a black key that goes to my Truck but it don't play music unless I use it to turn the truck on - does that count?
