Radio Songs or Songs With "Radio" in the Title


A few years ago, my buddy Mark and I spoke of morning radio in Toronto.  We're the same age, which means we'll be turning 35 this summer.  We agreed on two points: Humble and Fred were the best morning crew we had ever heard and it made absolutely no sense that Humble and Fred were no longer on the radio together.

I've never worked in the radio industry, but I fell in love with good radio at a young age.  The crap we're served up in the mornings in this city is shameful when I think about what I heard throughout the 90s on CFNY.  Wouldn't the Humble and Fred show be perfect for Jack FM?  It makes too much sense to happen, I suppose. That's the bizarro world we live in.

This afternoon I'll be reminded of what we're missing.  At 2pm at The Dominon on Queen I'll watch Humble and Fred do their thing and it will be funny.  It always is.  But it won't be phony funny, it will be organically funny.  They'll play off each other, as I've seen them do during the previous three podcasts, they'll make each other laugh and they'll be nice enough to let us listen in on their fun.

In honour of the radio I miss most, here are songs in my collection with the word "radio" in the title.  See you all this afternoon.
