It’s a ‘Tickets @ 2′ winner from The O’ Jays, the song to listen for between two and three to win Styx concert tickets is “Love Train.”

It was 1973, the height of the Philadelphia soul genre was dawning, and “Love Train” came along with just the right sound at just the right time. It was written by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. The team of Gamble and Huff would write and produce over 170 gold and platinum records – they also wrote “Back Stabbers” and “For The Love Of Money,” two more key songs in the O’Jays’ career.

The song has been used in numerous TV and film soundtracks, as well as in popular commercials, more recently Coors Light.

We’ll take caller #10 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Styx August 12th at the Pacific Amphitheater.
