'Take the Long Way Home'

From Tuesday afternoon's drive-time, at the Sound L.A.

I used to love Supertramp's "Breakfast in America." Actually, the album was a hit when I was getting into punk rock, so I pretty much dissed the record. But then in the summer of '79 I was on vacation at June Lake, and I was hiking around and I didn't have a Walkman or anything, and these construction guys were putting the frame up on a house with a boom box blaring the whole album. I was jonesin' for some tunes that week, because I was on vacation with my buddy's family (and it was a pretty structured situation), and I just sat on the side of the construction site and listened. I'll never forget that. I thought I didn't even like Supertramp, but I did.
