Station: Sophie 103.7 FM

Well, I've been in radio for 27 years, so when it comes to Peter Frampton, I'm pretty much tired of all his songs: "Show Me the Way"and, as sick as I was of "Baby, I Love Your Way," there was a time that the band Will the Power covered that song and combined it with "Freebird." And then we were hearing that song all over again, all the time. But the thing about Frampton songs that all jocks like is that they're "bathroom songs." Back in the days of vinyl, the DJs would play the long songs when they needed to go to the bathroom and do their business. The Frampton song that comes to mind is "Do You Feel Like We Do?" That song is about 15 minutes long. That was enough time to drive home and do your business there if you wanted.

Of course, it's every DJ's nightmare that the record would start skipping while you were in there. But that never happened to me. And, since the album was Frampton Comes Alive and they were all live tracks, if you ended up coming back late, there's applause between the songs; it goes right into the next track. You could come back and just say it was a "two-fer," and nobody would know it was a mistake.
