What Was The Inspiration Behind Turn Your Radio On?


Below is a quote from the author himself, Albert E Brumley:

"I wrote 'Turn Your Radio On' in 1937, and it was published in 1938. At this time radio was relatively new to the rural people, especially gospel music programs. I had become alert to the necessity of creating song titles, themes, and plots, and frequently people would call me and say, 'Turn your radio on, Albert, they're singing one of your songs on such-and-such a station.' It finally dawned on me to use their quote, 'Turn your radio on,' as a theme for a religious originated song, and this was the beginning of 'Turn Your Radio On' as we know it."


Turn Your Radio Song Lyrics


Well come and listen in
To a radio station
Where the mighty hosts
Of heaven sing
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
If you want to feel
Those good vibrations
Comin' from the joy
That His love can bring
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
Turn your radio on
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And glory share
(Glory glory share)
Turn your lights down low
(Oh yes turn your lights down low)
And listen to the Master's radio
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
Don'tcha know that everybody
Is a radio receiver
All you gotta do
Is listen for the call
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
If you listen in
You will be a believer
Leanin' on the truth
That will never fall
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And glory share
(Glory glory share)
Turn your lights down low
(Oh yes turn your lights down low)
And listen to the Master's radio-o-o-o-o
(Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master's radio)
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
