Wow, that line “radio reminds me of my home far away” _really_ comes out with different implications in the cyberpunk-inspired cover of Country Roads: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1_dy1EmV6w (Main feature ends before 3m53s; it's concatenated with a bunch of postroll talk.)
Quoted from my side of a conversation with an acquaintance, paraphrased to remove unrelated bits:
