One in a million...continued

Then, I got into my rental car, and, of course, the radio is tuned to some Spanish music station - I thought this was unique to rental cars in Phoenix, being so close to the border and all, but apparently the rental car cleaning crews in Newark are Mexican, too. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good Latin salsa like the rest of you, but not at that particular moment. So, not being from Jersey and not knowing what radio stations to tune to, I hit the radio station preset button number one…and I kid you not, it was the familiar guitar riff that opens Bon Jovi's song, "Wanted Dead or Alive"!!!

A smile slowly crept onto my face at this warm (and fitting) musical welcome to the Garden State. That song was followed up with Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name", followed by "Livin' on a Prayer", followed by "Have a Nice Day". UHHHH, do they have an entire radio station devoted to Bon Jovi here in their home state??? That's what I was starting to think, as I was savoring every moment of it. But, no, the DJ soon informed me that it was just a workday lunchtime set. The next set, (are you ready for this?), Bruce Springsteen. Yep, the Boss (also from NJ). Not a big fan of the Boss, so I couldn't tell you what songs they were playing, although I can tell you that they did NOT play "Born in the USA". But it was him alright, there's no mistaking that voice.

So, what are the chances of that happening again?

One in a million…
