Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri are friends, and if they had a radio show this is the music they would probably play. But they would play more Sammy Hagar. Don't get me wrong, I like Sammy Hagar, but nobody loves Sammy Hagar as much as Sammy Hagar loves Sammy Hagar. And Sammy Hagar already has a radio show, but Guy Fieri isn't part of it.
