Cruisin’ with the radio on – virtually!

Are you missing that commute into the city since the pandemic lockdown commenced?  Do you long to take a drive & have something on the vehicle radio to listen to?  There’s a brand new website called  Drive & Listen that is a virtual drive through a select group of cities with the ability to listen to a select number of radio stations.  Choose the city you wish to drive around, then on the bottom right panel find a radio station in that city to listen to.  If you don’t like what you hear toggle the tuning “>”  or “<” to the next radio station.  As it’s a new website, both the selection of cities available & the number of radio stations you can choose to listen to are still quite small.  Hopefully, this website/app will grow & add both more metro’s to drive around & increase the choice of radio stations you can listen to.  If you merely want to drive around these cities & not listen to any of the available stations, you can simply hit the ‘Pause’ “ll’ button.  Not happy with the speed the vehicle is travelling? Select the speed – “1X” “1.5X” or “2X” to increase the speed. Happy crusin’ & you’ll love the fuel mileage &/or high battery charge retention this site provides!
