Get your Zep on

My wife has recently returned from a visit to her folks on d'east coast. She has confirmed a belief I have long held: If you are in the tri-state area, (NY, NJ, CT), it never takes more than a few turns of the radio dial to find some Led Zeppelin. Try it out if you live there, or are just visiting. For this, I salute the radio programmers to our far right (geographically that is). Tash, of course, offers this up as a good reason to live on the east coast ( one of our early bonding moments was over our love of The Zep). It's a reason sure enough - there's nothing quite like a sweltering east coast summer, all the windows down, driving while rocking out to some Zep. However 'tis not a good enough one for me; after all, we do have them on CD.
