ON THE RADIO

ON THE RADIO
Songwriter/Artist: Frank Trainor

THAT WAS ME ON THE RADIO
YOUNG AND FREE ON THE AM DIAL
ROCK ‘N ROLL WAS THE WAY TO GO
I WAS GONNA BE ITS POSTER CHILD

BY THE SUMMER OF ‘65
MUSIC AIRWAVES CAME ALIVE
ROCKIN’ DJ’S SHUCK & JIVE
KEPT ME…TRANSISTORIZED

PEOPLE LOVED TO HEAR ME SING AND PLAY
IN MY OWN ECLECTIC STYLE
PRETTY SOON I WAS ON MY WAY
I WAS HOT FOR A LITTLE WHILE

SOLID GOLD BY ‘70
EVERYBODY OWNED A PIECE OF ME
PARTY TOWNS AND THE MONEY
KEPT ME…ANESTHETIZED

LAST HEARD ON THE RADIO
I DIED ON THE FM DIAL
THERE WAS NOWHERE LEFT TO GO
I HAD TRAVELED EVERY MILE

I SURVIVED THROUGH ‘82
MADE A COMEBACK IN TIMBUKTU
A HOLY MAN AND A CHICK I KNEW
KEPT ME…SELF-ACTUALIZED

THAT WAS ME ON THE RADIO
YOUNG AND FREE ON THE AM DIAL
ROCK ‘N ROLL WAS THE ONLY WAY TO GO
I WAS GONNA BE ITS POSTER CHILD

 

ON THE RADIO is a creative reflection on my life in music business pursuits over many long years. It is loosely autobiographical and it is also a personal homage to my favorite New York top 40 radio station in the mid-to-late 1960s, WABC 77. My love of the songs and the hit records of that golden era as presented by some of the greatest rock 'n roll DJs in the world inspired me to follow the path to becoming a songwriter and a recording artist. It is truly inspired and transcendent in it's scope. **Click link to view the cool NYC DJs radio image here
