Let's talk about Johnny Bench's idea of a perfect evening

Who knows when a baseball Hall-of-Famer will drop in unexpectedly? It happens! So to make super-sure I'll be prepared, I checked: "No pad is complete without tape deck and stereo. Whether country and western, acid rock or middle-of-the-road, music is a super friend of mine. I don't smoke and hardly ever drink. I guess music's my thing. A perfect evening would be dinner out and then back to the pad with a pretty girl, a few friends and good sounds."
