Today, in the car, I heard a song that I really liked. It was funky, jammin’, bluesy… It had some clav-action goin’ on. The lyrics weren’t too bad.

I had no idea what it was, but I loved it. So I called KZPS.

KZPS: “No, it was Zeppelin, dude!”
Me:”…”
KZPS:”Umm…”
Me: “Right, so it was Styx, huh?”
KZPS: “No.”
Me: “Wild Cherry?”
KZPS: “Zeppelin.”
Farris: “Stevie Wonder???”
KZPS: “NO. IT-WAS-LED-FUCKING-ZEPPELIN!*click*”

I called back, but they never would tell me who it was. Damn. I really fucking liked that song.
