Download Episode #22 On-Demand

This week, Jeremy and Dave take a look at the brand new 2014 Rand McNally Road Atlas.  Join us for plenty of fun and classic radio commercials.  Our On the Lighter Side segment has a little tongue-in-cheek fun with the group of high school students that got booted off an AirTran flight in New York last week.

Although Las Vegas bills itself as “Sin City”, careful planning can make it a wonderful destination for families.  This week, we discuss the best places to take your family while in Las Vegas, as well as ways to save money while in town.  We also discuss ways to enjoy the natural surroundings in the area, as Along the Way… heads up Interstate 15 north of the city in search of natural beauty.

Episode #2 – The Worst Roads in America

For those of you that thought Road Trip Radio would be pulled off the air after last week’s antics, think again!  More fun, more travel talk, and more travel tips abound on this week’s edition.

Road Trip Radio is back for a second week of travel and fun, but this time with a more critical eye.  Dave has the night off, so Jeremy discusses the worst, most potholed, most traffic-clogged, most dangerous highways in the United States.   And don’t forget to call in and answer tonight’s trivia question for a shot at winning valuable (and we repeat, valuable) prizes.  (Will anyone win the prize tonight?)  We take a virtual trip to West Texas in our Along the Way. . . segment, and if we’re in a good mood, we might even cross the state line into New Mexico.  Jeremy talks about how great it would be to drive a ’58 Edsel, and he takes calls from pedestrians and roadtrippers alike from across the country.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 10 p.m. East, 7 p.m. West, and call in at (646) 915-8095 to join in the conversation.
