MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Yes, this is it. It's your Fourth of July road trip playlist. Yesterday, we asked you to tell us which songs you'd like to hear when you're cruising down the highway. We received many great suggestions. So whether you're just sitting out, just got stuck in traffic, already at your destination or not going anywhere and you just want to escape through some tunes, crank it up. Enjoy.
