Liner Notes

This week’s top ten radio quotes.

George Harrison

Gossip is the Devil’s radio.

Johnny Carson

If it weren’t for Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television, we’d still be eating frozen radio dinners.

Doug Coupland

I like doing radio because it’s so intimate. The moment people hear your voice, you’re inside there heads, not only that, you’re in there laying eggs.

Fran Lebowitz

Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast, the disk jockey is not allowed to talk.

Charles Stanley

We’re enlarging in every single area of the ministry at In Touch. We’re on radio and television. We’re in over 110 million homes in America plus radio on satellites. We just acquired the NAMB FamilyNet television network, and with that expanding possibilities of the gospel.


I made two movies before The Police had a hit record: I did Quadrophenia and a film called Radio On.

Donny Osmond

You always draw from your roots. I’m influenced by everything I hear and see, and that includes music today, but obviously I go back to my early influences: Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, Average White Band. Those kind of artists are what I look to. When I hear that stuff on the radio, I turn it up!

Jason Mraz

When I was in high school, The Dave Matthews Band was a local band, and that was the first time I was starting to connect with a live band that was something that wasn’t on the radio or TV.

Kenny Chesney

I’m running a radio station.

Joe Strummer

I think we’re going to have to forget about the radio and just go back to word of mouth.
