    I was specifically referring to the generic 70s station.

    So what is in your vinyl collection? I'm truly curious. Mine is gone now, but I had Led Zeppelin II, The Band, etc. From your out list, still a fan of Kansas, REO, ZZ Top, Journey and VH. Maybe some Rush. Hated Supertramp. Saw KISS in concert for the first time two years ago, just for kicks.

    No doubt. That is straight-up Cheez Whiz. But sometimes that's exactly what I want.

    Come to think of it, my taste in cheese is a lot like my taste in music: There is very little that I don't like, but certainly a lot that I like better than others.

    For some reason I have always hated the bands with high-pitched male leads, so Rush, Kansas, Yes and Styx in particular were all exiled to the same island in my mind's ear.

    I still have most of my vinyl, which includes every Led Zep and Band album, among many others.

    A lot of progressive stuff that had melody and hooks (I find Rush tedious), blues masters (not Clapton, actual black guys), early 70s glam, late 70s punk and one-offs of other artists in genres I don't typically like, but which I found excellent (e.g. Steve Forbert's "Alive on Arrival").

    I probably have 40 CDs in my car at the moment (my ride incomprehensibly lacks an aux input). I think there are only five 70s CDs in that bunch: Physical Graffiti, Billion Dollar Babies, American Beauty and greatest hits compilations from Traffic and Steely Dan.

    My teenage daughter has several versions of me singing Bohemian Rhapsody while driving.

    Her friends love it.

    Afternoon Delight and Pina Colada Song are good too.

    I can definitely crush most of channel seven and eight on XM.

    Electric Avenue? Rio? Done.

    I nail this line in the car: "Once upon a time there was light in my life, but now there's only love in the dark. Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart."

    I'm a sucker for hard rock anthems:

    Come On Feel the Noize (Quiet Riot)
    I Love Rock & Roll (Joan Jett)
    We're Not Gonna Take It (Twisted Sister)
    There's Only One Way to Rock (Sammy Hagar)
