The Foghat principle

Spencer Patterson

The Foghat principle “The problem with classic-rock radio,” my friend opined, “is that you can’t listen for two hours without hearing Foghat’s ‘Slow Ride’ at least once.” No great champion of the format, I nevertheless felt a duty to defend it against his ludicrous exaggeration. That is, until moments later when, driving my car behind his, I received a call on my cell. “Turn your dial to [such-and-such station].” And there it was, right on schedule. “Slow ride/Take it easy.” True story.

Foghat. October 12, 8 p.m., $20-$37.50. Boulder Station’s Railhead, 432-7777.
