Did You Know: “Lights” By Journey

Today on ‘Tickets @ 2’ listen for “Lights” by Journey.

It’s one of the first Journey songs to feature Steve Perry on lead vocals. He was accepted into the band after the group’s manager listened to his audition tape for only 15 seconds. Even though the song is about San Francisco, it was written here in L.A., where the band relocated.

‘When the light go down in the city and the sun shines on L.A.’ Didn’t ring well with Steve so he changed it to ‘The City by The Bay.’

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller # 10 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to attend “Knott’s Scary Farm” Saturday, October 19th.
