0932 - What is it about Southern rock?

If you look over my iTunes library, you'll find a fairly wide selection of classic rock, with a heavier-than-average dose of ZZ Top (the three wise men of rock), and a not inconsequential amount of other Southern rockers like .38 Special, Marshall Tucker Band, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I don't know why, but Southern rock has a distinctive sound to it that gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling. I don't know if it's because it got more airplay in Houston while I was growing up than the rest of the genre (though I doubt it), or just why, but the effect is quite real for me.

I likes me the southern rock, but I don't have much. For me the warm fuzzy place is Chicago 16, 17, and 18.

What, did KLOL finally drop the rock format? They weren't exactly classic rock when I last tuned into them in about 2000 or so, but they were still more rockish than anything else.

Then again, my radio now stays on XM 40 and 46 most of the time, so the terrestrial broadcast scene is lost on me.
