Liner Notes

This week’s top ten radio quotes:

Gerald R. Ford

I watch a lot of baseball on the radio.

Maynard James Keenan

If the education of our kids comes from radio, television, newspapers – if that’s where they get most of their knowledge from, and not from the schools, then the powers that be are definitely in charge, because they own all those outlets.

Glenn Beck 

Quite honestly, I was running from myself. But I knew how to work Top 40 radio.

Jasper Carrott

I am amazed at radio DJ’s today. I am firmly convinced that AM on my radio stands for Absolute Moron. I will not begin to tell you what FM stands for.

Joni Mitchell

There was this mountain village in Russia where my music was getting in on some German radio station. I remember this because music used to get up to Saskatchewan from Texas. Late at night after the local station closed down.

Ernst Fischer

The bosses of our mass media, press, radio, film and television, succeed in their aim of taking our minds off disaster. Thus, the distraction they offer demands the antidote of maximum concentration on disaster.

Al Yankovic

You still have Top 40 radio now, but it’s 40 different stations. There aren’t many hits that everybody knows, and there aren’t many real superstars.

Klaus Kinski

About 25 years ago, I was in an apartment, and next door, they put on the radio, so I struck the wall with my fist, but they did not put the radio down. I took a tool and banged until I made a hole through the wall. It was like a comedy movie.

Steven Wright

George is a radio announcer, and when he walks under a bridge… you can’t hear him talk.

Aung San Suu Kyi

I could listen to the radio and I had access to books from time to time. Not all the time.
