Radio is such a perfect medium for the transmission of poetry, primarily because there just is the voice, there's no visual distraction.
I love writing songs. I love doing my radio show and talking to the fans and listening to what they have to say, but there's a certain responsibility that comes along with being given the gift of music. I take that seriously, but at the same time I try to use it to do something that makes a difference in a positive way.
I owed Lewis one thing, at least. Once you had suffered the experience of presenting a case at one of his Monday morning conferences, no other public appearance, whether on radio, TV or the lecture platform, could hold any terrors for you.
When television came along, I'd already done more than 10 years of radio work and I thought everyone would want me. I sat around waiting for the phone to ring - and it didn't.
I once did a three-hour interview with Radio Oxford only to be told the microphone hadn't picked me up.
In 'Changeling,' I tried to show something you'd never see nowadays - a kid sitting and looking at the radio. Just sitting in front of the radio and listening. Your mind does the rest.
When I was born in 1920, the auto was only 20 years old. Radio didn't exist. TV didn't exist. I was born at just the right time to write about all of these things.
I haven't had television since 1991, and it definitely influences me. As a child of the 1970s, I couldn't hold a narrative in my head; I was lucky if I could hold a joke in my head, because every time you turn on television or radio, it wipes the slate clean - at least in my case.
I listen to my old records and I think, 'How did I ever get on the radio?'

I once went on the most grueling radio tour. Living in hotel rooms, sleeping in the backs of rental cars as my mom drove to three different cities in one day.
I've had so many people tell me that they are shocked that AM radio still even exists with all the different listening options.
I watch a lot of baseball on the radio.
Gerald R. Ford
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Until it's on the radio or online, it's not real. With U2, our album isn't finished until it's in the stores.
Radio in England is nonexistent. It's very bad English use of a media system, typically English use.
I could listen to the radio and I had access to books from time to time. Not all the time.

Politics is not my life. I have a career in radio and another career in film.
Radio, which was a much better medium than television will ever be, was easy and pleasant to listen to. Your mind filled automatically with images.
The right really dominates radio, and it's amazing how much energy the right spends telling us that the press is slanted to the left when it really isn't. They want to shut other people up. They really don't understand the First Amendment.
I'm syndicated on the radio - my show is called 'The Sweat Hotel.'
I have a car in Nebraska. When I bought it, they gave me a satellite radio, and there's an 'indie-rock' station. It's just nothing I'm interested in.
The so-called alleged 'art' of the video - well, the video has killed the radio star, but the video star killed the live musician, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
Demagoguery sells. And therefore, radio stations will put it on. But that doesn't mean that you can't do something else and also make it sell.
