DJs on the radio are obsessed with music. Musicians sometimes write songs about the radio. Picture a Venn diagram. If you are obsessed with both the radio and music then this list is for you. I asked legendary radio pro Bart Shore to help us compile this list. I think we nailed it.
“Transmission” by Joy Division
“Radio Radio” by Elvis Costello & The Attractions
“The Spirit of Radio” by Rush
“Radio GaGa” by Queen
“Video Killed The Radio Star” by The Buggles
“I Can’t Live Without My Radio” by LL Cool J
“Mexican Radio” by Wall of Woodoo
“On The Radio” by Donna Summer
“Don’t Listen To The Radio” by The Vines
“Satellite Radio” by Steve Earle
“Devil’s Radio” by George Harrison
“There Ain’t No Tits on The Radio” by Scissor Sisters
“You Turn Me On I’m A Radio” by Joni Mitchell
“Turn Up The Radio” by Autograph
“On The Radio” by The Selector
“Wolfman Jack” by Todd Rundgrend
For this one, we have Bart Shore presenting from Time Warp Radio.
Wolfman Jack is considered to be the most iconic Radio DJ ever at this point. His name is synonymous with radio fame and that’s why a song about him made the top of our list. Todd Rundgrend was a great song writer. This track have been a little overlooked.
This has gotten paradoxically meta. Is this Inception? Are we in the movie Inception right now?
