Songs about places tonight on Runout Numbers! We're both from special places: Detroit, out west, Arizona, the prairies of the Midwest, and good ole Music City, USA. As people who have traversed the country a few times and moved homes a few times more, place is important to us.

Two whole hours of summertime car song goodness. We cover the highways found, the lost highways, the places where the streets have no names, and how you get there. Most importantly: what takes you there. Which hopefully is a pink Cadillac.

Tom Waits would never be described as a particularly commercial artist. Depending on if you ask someone like my mother about albums like Mule Variations or Bone Machine, he could also be described as incoherent, cacophonous, or The-Reason-Why-We-Ask-You-To-Keep-Your-Door-Closed-Upstairs.
