Half the fun of hitting the open road is putting together the perfect road trip playlist.

Whether you stream it, have CD stacker or if your car still has a tape deck (kudos to you), you can’t drive in complete silence.  Well, you can, but the very thought of it is giving us a flat battery.

Botica’s Bunch threw open the phones to find out what songs get Perth’s engines purring… why?

96FM’s Real Music Road Trip!

Get this: you and a friend will kick off in Las Vegas, where you’ll see Robbie Williams live in concert.

Then, before hitting the road, you’ll also laugh yourself silly in the audience of Jerry Seinfeld.

It gets even better.



You’ll then pick a Ford Mustang and cruise along along Route 66 – from Las Vegas to Chicago – checking out The Grand Canyon, Seligman, Acoma Sky City, The Petrified Forest, Cadillac Ranch and more!

Then we’ll fly you to Los Angeles to see the Eagles play Hotel California, in its entirety.

Oh, and we’ll throw in $10,000!


With that in mind, hit PLAY below to hear what Perth cranks…
