Joe and I love a good road trip. For as long as we’ve known each other (which dates back to the early-mid 1990s), besides enjoying the sites, we’ve liked playing our favorite songs and signing along, and sometimes even adding in harmony (sometimes good, sometimes not so much) along the way. In the very early years, we did that with old fashioned mix tapes.
After a decade or so, we upgraded to “Mix CDs,” which eventually gave way to “What channel do you want to listen to on (Sirius-XM, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal, etc.)?” We each have our favorite; I prefer Sirius-XM, while Joe always liked Spotify because they let you make your own playlists and download songs as long as you have a paid subscription – that way you can listen to them offline, like when you’re on a plane). Now Pandora offers the same service and, get this, they’re offering a year’s subscription FOR FREE tomorrow, if you have T-Mobile service and their app.
