They're Playing My Song

During the five or six years I’ve had satellite radio, my progress through 5,000 channels has been, well, slow. I’ve yet to experience the country bar songs of the “Red, White and Booze” channel or the ’80s hair band sounds of “Hair Nation.” Riding on just two axles, I’ve positioned myself outside the target demo for the “Road Dog Trucking”…

Dragon's Breadth
