KHJ - Los Angeles
Portions of today's programming are reproduced by means of electrical transcriptions, or tape recordings

You could hear the music on the AM Radio

The VCR and the DVD - there wasn't none of that crap back in 1970
We didn't know about a World Wide Web
Was a whole different game being played back when I was a kid
Wanna get down in a cool way?
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
Big Bell Bottoms and groovy, long hair
Just a-walking in style with a portable CD player - No!
You would listen to the music on the AM Radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM Radio

Flashback to '72
Another summer in the neighborhood, hanging out with nothing to do
Sometimes we'd go driving around in my sister's Pinto
Cruising with the windows rolled down
We'd listen to the radio station - we were too damn poor to buy the 8-track tape
It wasn't then a good time to want to be inside
My momma 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 'til you could hear it on the AM Radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM Radio
I can still hear momma say, "Boy, turn that radio down!"

Aww, mom, not that show again!
I don't wanna watch that show
Can't we watch Good Times or Chico And The Man or something cool?
Turn it off!

Things changed back in '75
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 and teach me to play

There isn't any place that I need to go
There isn't anything that I need to know I did not learn from the radio

Yeah, when things get stupid and I just don't know where to find my Happy
I listen to the music on the AM Radio
You could hear the music on the AM Radio
You could hear the music on the AM Radio

I like Pop
I like Soul
I like Rock
But, I never liked Disco

AM Radio

I like Pop
I like Soul
I like Rock
But, I never liked Disco

AM Radio

We like Pop
We like Soul
We like Rock
But, we never liked Disco

AM Radio...
