If you listen to KCRW during your evening commute, you know who Kajon Cermak is. Offering traffic updates with an upbeat and warm disposition often in contrast to the ugly bumper-to-bumper gridlock details she has to share with Angelenos, the reporter has been graced with a song in her honor, and that song is your video lunch today.

As the songwriter and fan explained on the song's YouTube page:

[O]ne day just as the KCRW air staff was introducing her, I said "Talk to me, Kajon," and for some reason that sounded like a song. By the time I got home, i had the chorus, and after a couple of hours of thinking about it, the three verses practically wrote themselves.
