Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” By The Rolling Stones

‘Tickets @ 2’ today feature’s that monster home run hit by The Rolling Stones “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

On June 5, 1965, The Stones played to about 3,000 people at Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater, Florida while on their third US tour.

That night, Keith Richards woke up in his hotel room with the guitar riff and lyric “Can’t get no satisfaction” in his head. He recorded it on a portable tape deck, went back to sleep, and brought it to the studio that week. The tape contained his guitar riff followed by the sounds of Keith snoring. The Stones were staying at the Fort Harrison Hotel (known at the time as the Jack Tar Harrison Hotel.)

Richards ran his guitar through a Gibson Fuzz Box to create the distortion effect, Gibson had just sent him the device. Jagger wrote the lyrics.

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take lucky caller #13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to wina 4-Pack of tickets to the Los Angeles Boat Show in two locations, the L.A. Convention Center and Burton Chase Park in Marina Del Rey, with shuttle service between the two locations.
