Since you have taken notice of the music King uses in his books you may appreciate this 1989 interview in which King talks alot about music, his radio station, and playing his guitar. At the beginning you'll see him riding in his truck singing along to "One More Summer". This is one of my favorite interviews because, while he has reached the apex of success, he remains candid, contemplative, and humble. (He's generally humble in everyday life, though.) This only the first part of interview but they're all available on YouTube.
