I thought I would make you laugh, this really happened, my friend is not too familiar with your solo work, he's a big fan of the first two ASIA LP's.

Mater of fact you ran into us in the lobby at Foxwoods when we were checking out.

  Anyway, I said listen to this one (Hold Me Now) it's reminiscent of Without You.
  So I had it blasting then I noticed I passed a state trooper on the right and then I seen my radar blinking.
  But I didn't hear the radar because the song drowned it out.
    LOL! By the time he caught up with me I was going the speed limit but he didn't let me off the hook.
  But he was nice enough to write me up for only 10 over the limit.

Glad to hear you're doing well, you been in my prayers!

What they have to do is find a way to connect the radar detector to the car speakers like programming in the frequency code for each car.

Anyway, I just claimed copyright right by coming out with that idea, so if a car or radar company reads this and likes it please contact me.

This is telling me that it might not be a GOOD thing that the volume on my car stereo increases with the speed at which I'm travelling. 

Guess it doesn't matter since I don't have a radar detector anyway ...

Are you serious.... DB?  Funny!


April,
 I mean no matter how loud you have your stereo on, the radar detector is coded into the system itself.
  So even if you're going the speed limit, and there is a cop ahead, the radar beeps into the speakers of the stereo. So no matter what volume level you're at, the radar is built into or works with the speakers of the car.
 Not that the music you're playing will get louder if you go faster.

Hiya Sole - your idea must be technologically possible. Over in Germany, the news broadcasts automagically increase the car radio's volume to get the driver's attention. I asked my colleague how it worked and he looked puzzled and surprised that American car radios don't do the same. (or maybe some do, but I'm not able to afford such advanced electronics!)

sorry Sole that stuff never works. you know that new movie 'I Am Legend'? it is basically a remake of the old Charlton Heston movie 'The Omega Man'. i told someone about 10 years ago 'hey it would be great if they remade this movie'. and they did. and i am still broke.
 did Dave McGrath loan you the Black Beast, Sole? if he did you should have driven someplace just a tad warmer for about 48 hours.

Awww, poor Sole.    Did you try to make up an alibi to get you out of getting a ticket, like "I have to go to the bathroom real bad!"? 

Never would have thought J.W. would be the cause of getting a speeding ticket!  I would have blamed Sammy Hagar (remember "I Can't Drive 55"?).

I know, Sole.  I was saying the louder music at a faster speed would drown out the radar detector.  Isn't that what happened to you?

I think the music alone was worth the speeding ticket! You were crankin' along, having a great time with great tunes! Who could blame you! At least the cop didn't bust you for the fee he could have nailed you for! It's real easy to get caught up in the music with Asia playing, isn't it?!
