DRIVE MU­SIC

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

The right driv­ing mu­sic is dread­ully im­por­tant. Co­conut al­ways has a fist­ful of cas­settes lined up when he goes for a burn in the Austin. But not so a 55year-old English woman who de­cided to tune her car ra­dio to a clas­si­cal FM sta­tion for the drive home, even though she was very tired and usu­ally tuned into that sta­tion to help her go to sleep. So she went to sleep, swerved across a busy road and took out a street sign, and landed up in court get­ting an almighty slap from the judge. In court she blamed Ra­dio 4. Madam, Co­conut blames your lack of a handy road tape. Have you not heard of the Doo­bies’ China Grove, the All­mans’ Mid­night Rider, Step­pen­wolf’s Magic Car­pet Ride, or the Boss’s Born To Run?
