    I've noticed, usually listening to NPR which will often repeat programs, that on the second listening, not only will I recall the first, but the circumstances of it.  Especially if that involved driving (scenery, weather, location, and other aspects).

    Other vivid memories of mine are very strongly tied to place, especially if they involved travel (or even just getting out and about the town).
