K-H-J Los Angeles! Portions of today's programming are reproduced by means of electrical transcriptions or tape recordings You can hear the music Of the AM Radio
The VCR and the DVD There was none of that crap Back in 1970 We didn't know about a World Wide Web It was a whole different game Being played back when I was a kid
want to get down in a cool way Picture yourself on a beautiful day Big bell bottoms and groovy long hair Just walking in style with a portable CD player No you'd listen to the music on the
AM Radio AM Radio Yeah you could hear the music on the AM Radio AM Radio
Flashback, seventy-two Another summer in the neighborhood Hanging out with nothing to do Sometimes we go driving around In my sister's pinto Cruising with the windows rolled down We listen to the radio station We were too damn cool To buy the eight track tape There wasn't any good time To want to be inside My mama want to watch that TV All goddamn night
I'd be in bed with the radio on I would listen to it all night long Just to hear my favorite song You'd have to wait till you could hear it on the
AM Radio AM Radio Yeah you could hear the music on the AM Radio AM Radio I can still hear Mama say Boy turn that radio down!
Aw, Mom. Not that show again! I don't want to watch that show! Can't we watch Good Times or Chico and the Man or something cool? Turn it off!
Things changed back in seventy-five We were all growing up on the in and the outside We got in trouble with the police man We got busted getting high in the back of my friend's van I remember 1977 I started going to concerts and I saw the Led Zeppelin I got a guitar on Christmas day I dreamed that Jimmy Page would come to Santa Monica to teach me to play teach me to play
There isn't any place that I need to go There isn't anything that I need to know That I did not learn on the radio
Everything gets stupid and I just don't know where to find my happy I listen to my music on the AM Radio AM Radio You can hear the music on the AM Radio AM Radio You can hear the music on the AM Radio AM Radio
I like pop, I like soul, I like rock, but I never liked disco. I like pop, I like soul, I like rock, but I never liked disco. We like pop, we like soul, we like rock, but we never liked disco
No never liked disco No never liked disco No never liked disco No never liked disco

Clarke from Pittsburgh, PaThe radio sample at the beginning comes from KHJ in Los Angeles, a prominent (and dominant) AM Top 40 station from the mid-1960's to the mid-1970's.
Bev from Lees Summit, MoYes, Stephanie, I was around then and FM radio did exist in the 70s. When I was in junior high I remember listening to FM stations play entire albums by groups like Blue Oyster Cult and a comedy troup called Firesign Theater. I also remember on the AM stations hearing people like Judy Collins, Al Green, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Neil Young all played one after the other. I wish more stations would be willing to just play what they like now instead of having to follow a format.
Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScIf I remember correctly, I read that FM stations ixisted in the 1970's. They were more progressive then, and called AOR or Album Oriented Rock stations. My facts are correct, aren't they? I wasn't around then.
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaNice usage of Mr. Big Stuff, I heard AM Radio before that.
Ty from Niagara Falls, CanadaI enjoy this song, it's very upbeat and takes you back to a simpler time. Makes me think of the movie Dazed & Confused too
