These Kids Don’t Want to Rock
Davis and I were driving and listening to music. He likes to rock so we had it on the station that used to play oldies, 92.5. Now it’s just hard rock for hard people like me. It can’t still only play oldies because Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds” came on and that’s a current and raging hit.
