Our ‘Tickets @ 2′ hit today is “Philadelphia Freedom” by Elton John. It’s a #1 song from the album Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy.”

The song title was in honor of his friend, tennis player Billie Jean King. At the time, there was a professional tennis league in America called World Team Tennis, and in 1974 King coached a team called the “Philadelphia Freedoms.”

Elton tried to attend as many of her matches as he could, and promised King a song after she gave him a customized track suit.

When you hear it between two and three we’ll take lucky caller 13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a 4-Pack of Hopper tickets to Legoland and Sea Life to have fun on Brick-Or-Treat party nights.
