I know that the word "radio" features many times in "Transmission", but I don't think the song's about radio. Is it?

That's the first song that came up in my head when seeing the title if this thread... not that I'd have voted for it though.

My vote went to Cool James. Transmission would've gotten it had it been on the list.

Would The Velvet Underground's 'Rock N Roll' qualify?

The lyrics make me always immediately think about the radio.

Jenny said, when she was just five years old
There was
nothin' happening at all
Every time she puts on the
radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all, not at
all
Then, one fine mornin', she puts on a New York
station
You know, she couldn't believe what she heard
at all
She started shakin' to that fine, fine music
You know, her life was saved by rock'n'roll
Despite all the imputations
You know, you could just go
out
And dance to a rock'n'roll station
And
it was all right, hey baby,
You know, it was all right
Jenny said, when she was just about five years old
`You
know, my parents are gonna be the death of us all
Two TV
sets and two Cadillac cars
Well, you know, ain't gonna
help me at all`
Then, one fine morning, she turns on a NewYork station
She doesn't believe what she hears at
all
Ooh, she started dancin' to that fine, fine
music
You know, her life was saved by
rock'n'roll
Yeah, rock'n'roll
Despite all the computations
You could just dance to that
rock'n'roll station
And baby, it was all right,
yeah
Hey, it was all right
Hey, here she comes now
Jenny said, when she was just about five years old
'Hey, you know, there's nothin' happening at
all, not at all
Every time I put on the radio
You
know, there's nothin' goin' down at all, not at
all
But, one fine morning, she hears a New York station
She couldn't believe what she heard at all, hey, not at
all
She started dancing to that fine, fine music
You
know, her life was saved by rock'n'roll
Yes,
rock'n'roll
Despite all the computations
You
know, you could just dance to the rock'n'roll
station
All right
All right, all right, and it was all
right
Oh, listen to me now, it was all right
Come on
now, believe me, it was all right
it was all right
Hey, it's all right now,.......

I'll try to remember it in the telephone songs poll.

Only The Kinks are yet to get a vote.
