I Missed Again - Phil Collins - 1981

The 3 Of A Kind feature was also presented.
The main idea of this feature is that listener tries to figure out how each of the 3 songs played are related to each other.
The first listener to E - Mail Dr. Johnny with the correct answer, will get a " Shout - Out " on the air!
The songs played were:
Come Sail Away - Styx - 1977 - 1978
Ride Like The Wind - Christopher Cross - 1980

The answer of how these 3 songs are connected with each other is:
Each song title has something to do with " Sailing ".
