We could make quite a list of things we miss during this COVID-19 lock-down – even as it begins to ease a little. I miss going to movies and eating in restaurants; I miss strolling along bustling sidewalks feeling the pulse of a great city; I miss carefree afternoons and waterfront walks and sipping on an iced-tea in a Harbourfront cafe. And I miss the summer road trip. That feeling of absolute freedom of driving wherever the road takes us. With the pandemic still raging, even if/when the border opens, the notion of a road trip is a bit chilling right now.
So it occurred to me it would be fun to take a virtual road trip – in song – with 30 tunes about places we could visit while on ‘the great circle tour’ of North America. What’s that, where will we go, what songs and who’s singing ??? … answers revealed this Sunday between 2 and 4:30 on ‘The Fantasy Road Trip‘ edition of Vintage Favourites, hosted by yours truly – your tour guide. We’re leaving promptly, with a lot of miles to cover – so don’t miss the start.
