Did You Know: “Love Rollercoaster” By The Ohio Players

Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Love Rollercoaster” by The Ohio Players.

The idea for the song came while the group was on a flight to their next show aboard a twin engine plane (a Navajo), while flying through turbulent, stormy weather. As their drummer Jimmy ‘Diamond’ Williams tells it, he was in the co-pilot seat when the plane hit air pockets and dropped 400 feet, like a rollercoaster. Someone on the plane commented that the airplane ride was like a “love rollercoaster.”

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #9 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to Knott’s Scary Farm.
