Episode 73: Tunes For The Trail?

In Episode 73, we discuss the most appropriate hiking & backpacking songs for the trail.  The assignment was to come to the studio with 3 songs that relate to hiking/backpacking – in either the lyrics or song title.  In the show, we listen and debate each song and give honorable mention to some others that didn’t make our list.

This is a very subjective topic with many options and opinions and it is likely to stir up some controversy.  We rarely reach agreement since there are multiple ways to define “appropriate”, and a member of our group even goes rogue with 3 songs that he enjoys while on the trail – which results in a side conversation.

Regardless – this is an entertaining show that will have you scratching your head, laughing out loud, and thinking of your top 3.  Drop us a note when you do … and I’ll post them below!
