My Little Radio

I’ve got a little radio
Plays a little zideco
A little fiddle then an old banjo
On my little radio

I got a little radio
Bakelite and a little red glow
It’s never gonna fadeo
Not my little radio

My little radio’s coming in loud and clear
My little radio’s all I want to hear
My little radio plays all night long
My little radio sings this little song

I got a little radio
Grand Ol’ Opry Show
On the waves from RKO
To my little radio

I’ve got a little radio
Townes and Country Joe
Hank Williams through the snow
On my little radio

My little radio’s coming in loud and clear…

I’ve got a little radio
Juliet to my Romeo
Sweetheart of the rodeo
She’s my little radio

I’ve got a little radio
Sunshine studio
On the way from Tupelo
To my little radio

My little radio’s coming in loud and clear…

Reminds me of my formative years
I used to sit up late at night, listening to folk stations, while my little sisters were asleep. This is cool, Tom. Nice harmony, nice playing. It reminds me of Bill Danoff/Taffy Nivert, singing Late Nite Radio.

Wonderful song
The lyrics here are as smooth as one of the original pews at the Ryman auditorium. Good stuff and good production too!

Beautiful folk! Hey Tom, you neglected to tell us who is singing with you on this one. Whoever it is, you sing beautifully together. Well done.

Take care!

Very sweet tune! Lead vocal real clear,backing vocal could have been brought up a little in my opinion,but could just be my cheap headset-lol. Nice job!!

Tom: Nice folkie sound. Love those vintage harmonies.

Now you have to update the lyrics to "my little iPod".

When are you gonna post some more stuff?

Mississippi John Hurt Lives!
Very Mississippi John Hurt guitar playing. Great lyric. There's a little Arlo Guthrie in your lead vocal (which I love).
