The ‘Tickets @ 2′ song to win Steve Miller tickets is “Ventura Highway” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]America[/lastfm]. Dewey Bunnell wrote the song and told the L.A. Times in 2006 explaining, “It was 1963 when I was in the seventh grade, we got a flat tire and we’re standing on the side of the road staring at this highway sign. It said ‘Ventura’ on it and it just stuck with me. It was a sunny day and the ocean there, all of it.”

Regarding the lyrics, “Seasons crying no despair, alligator lizards in the air,” Bunnell said: “The clouds. It’s my brother and I standing there on the side of the road looking at shapes of the clouds while my dad changed the tire.”

When we play it between two & three we’ll take caller #10 to win those Steve Miller tickets, 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
