My afternoon shift on the radio between 3-7p is known as “Afternoon Drive Time” because it’s the most common commute time home. Thus “Doin The Cruise”. “Morning Drive” with Scott and Danielle is the same going to work. I try to make your time in the car pass with lots of good tunes, traffic with Tom Beck, info, laughter (optional but advised) and generally at least some silly behavior. I saw an article in this mornings Trib. titled “Spend a Lot of Time In Your Car? These gems help us manage our commutes.” Thought I’d pass a few along to enhance your distance and driving pleasures.
Ergonomic car seat cushion
Car seats aren’t known for being the most luxurious or comfortable places to sit, so a long commute can leave you feeling stiff or sore. However, an ergonomic car seat cushion, like the Dreamer Car Auto Seat Lumbar Support, can reduce symptoms of sciatica, muscle tightness, and general back pain. Plus, it costs just$29.99.
Travel essential oil diffuser
Is the stress of your commute getting to you? If so, you might benefit from a relaxation aid in the form of an essential oil diffuser. It can help soothe your commute-wearied soul, plus it smells much fresher than a standard air freshener. The Gulaki Car Diffuser costs $25.99 and releases aromatherapy while acting as a humidifier, which is useful if the air in your car is dry from running the heater.
If you’re spending a significant amount of time behind the wheel, a pair of driving shoes could be worth your while. They’re comfortable slip-ons with rubber soles that cushion your feet while providing traction for the pedal, and you can keep them in your vehicle to wear when you drive. Nordstrom sells this Victor Driving Shoe for men for $114.95, and these Sam Edelman Driving Shoes for women are discounted to $83.96.

I would warn you about one of their suggestions. An Audiobook Subscription Service. We would not recommend that! You should definitely be listening to 95.9 The River on your ‘Cruise Home’.
