(Clip of old radio broadcast:
[sung]KHJ Los Angeles!
[spoken] "Portions of today's programming are reproduced by means of electrical transcriptions or tape recordings")
(Clip of Motown song "Mr. Big Star" fades into lyrics)
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
Playin' 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 walkin' 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, 72
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!"

(Spoken "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 '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 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
(Spoken- "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
