Mexican Radio was written and performed by Wall of Voodoo for their 1982 album Call Of The West. In 1983 it would get a release as a single (the b-side was…interesting) and would go onto chart on the Billboard Hot 100, topping off at #58. Band members Ridgway and Moreland have said the song was inspired by their listening to unregulated AM Mexican radio stations that reached large portions of the United States. The song would become an off the radio hit when they released this video which had a moderate level of rotation on Mtv.
