This week's Record Bin Roulette wheel lands on: the Joy of Travel. Maynard and Kessler find that leavin' on a jet plane isn't so easy anymore

OK, quick!  Can you name a song about travel? We're pretty sure you can.  Come fly with this week's Record Bin Roulette, and take a trip on a sailing ship tour of the joys - and the not so joyful moments - of travel. 

Hosts John Maynard and John Kessler dig up the familiar and the obscure as tour guides on this fantasy trip down memory lane, complete with full body scans. 

What songs would you add to the mix?

John has worked as a professional bassist for 20 years, including a 15 year stint as Musical Director of the Mountain Stage radio program. John has been at KNKX since 1999 where he hosts “All Blues”, is producer of the BirdNote radio program, and co-hosts “Record Bin Roulette”. John is also the recording engineer for KNKX “In-Studio Performances”. Not surprisingly, John's main musical interests are jazz and blues, and he is still performing around Seattle.
John Maynard started working in radio in the seventies as a DJ at Seattle’s KJR AM which at the time was the dominant AM station in the Seattle market. After a brief stint as a restaurateur and night club owner, Maynard returned to radio with Robin Erickson, creating the hugely popular “Robin and Maynard Show.” In the more than 20 years under that marquee, Maynard flew with the Blue Angels, piloted the Goodyear Blimp, sang with Donny Osmond and hung out in a Universal Studios bar with Kojak (Telly Savalas).
