Nicole, a listener from River Falls, Wis., explains that she and her family recently took a summer road trip. It must have been a good experience, because Nicole is evidently still in a traveling mood. She wrote to us to suggest a Coffee Break theme of songs to accompany a road trip.

So let's go with Nicole's idea. For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear make for a good road-trip soundtrack? Send us your requests.
