Pilot Of The Airwaves – Charlie Dore – 1979

Pilot Of The Airwaves – Charlie Dore – 1979

Ah yes, Charlie Dore!

This great song,”Pilot Of The Airwaves” takes me back to my youth when you had to request songs if you wanted to listen to them on the radio. Sure you could listen randomly and hope your song would show up, but who wants to risk it?

What an angelic voice, backed up by some clean harmonizing from the rest of the group. The video and song remind us of a simpler time when listening to the radio was king, and the DJs and announcers we called to play our favorites were royalty!

I loved this song back in the day. I’m even quite positive I requested it when calling my local AM station. So really, the song comes full circle for me!

Charlie Dore, you’re sounding good to me!

  1. It is definitely one of my all-time favorites, but there is a huge buyer beware for those looking to stream the song: anything other than the song from the original album is a rerecording. Also, there was a 45 version where they end the song with a repeat of the chorus a capella. I prefer the version you attached immensely.
