Reflecting: Discovering new music while we were away

Music is near and dear to Ant's heart. Enjoy this post written by him. 

The weather’s turning, the leaves are changing, and it’s been over TWO months since we’ve been back from our amazing road trip! It’s crazy to think that we even did that at this point. Sometimes I’ll be driving around and it will hit me that I’m just on the LIE going home, or on 347 going to Trader Joes and not someplace that I’ve never been before. Usually it’s music that triggers those feelings. Music always brings up nostalgia, no matter how long it’s been you can always relive memories and time periods in life through a song. Having Sirius XM in the rental car was great! It gave us new music to link new memories to. Albeit often repetitive, sometimes at nauseam (that’s when we turned to the stand up comedy channels for a bit) but it’s great to be able to listen to a song and go back (arguably even better than looking at pictures at times). Anyway in no particular order here is a taste of what Sirius XM had to offer us this summer besides Josiah the DJ’s very enjoyable voice. JOSIAHHHHH!!!!!!!
