Aug.20 is officially National Radio Day. The holiday is meant to celebrate the invention of this communications medium, which has evolved in many ways since it first became available in the 1800s. For decades, the radio has helped launch the careers of many musicians. Everyone has at least one song or station on the radio they enjoy.

Celebrate the day by tuning into your fave station, reminiscing about radio classics and personalities, or listening to radio tracks that we occasionally indulge in…

I’m ashamed at how much I like this song.

It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a new country song as much as this one.

The fact that this song is on mainstream radio in Arizona makes me so happy. I will never change the channel when it’s playing.


DEE’S PICKS:
I like to avoid the radio, unless I’m listening to jazz or NPR. With that said, I have my masochistic ways. Turning it to stations that replay the same song over and over again. Those songs with instrumentals that make you think your car is making a weird song. Or the ones that are sometimes so distractive that you have to turn them down when you’re trying to focus on where you’re going. I’m sharing the songs that I hate to love from the radio, so my picks double as guilty pleasures.

I realized that this song normally only comes on during the late-night drives. “We run things, things don’t run we.” OK, Miley.

This song seems ancient in the radio world, but it’s still getting a lot of play time. If it’s on while I’m driving, I usually don’t switch the dial and I’m not sure why. Maybe because I sense a neediness from Rihanna…no?

OK, I don’t feel ashamed for liking Robin Thicke. He’s got an undeniable finesse. Also…Pharrell Williams.

This song reminds me of Talia Castellano, a little 13-year-old girl who recently passed away from cancer. One of her close friends posted a video on YouTube of them playing around and performing this song.
