Bob Ringwald, and possible others, are correct that the lyrics for a
song called "Radio" posted recently are NOT the same as the one sang by
the likes of Banu and Polly Podewell. That one has a lot of lyrics
mentioning the different old radio shows, including, "The Shadow Knows".
As a "sidebar" it might be interesting to some, who have not heard Polly
tell the story on stage, that she has a special interest in that song.
Her father, and perhaps her mother also, but I forget that detail now,
worked in radio on the Shadow.
The following snippet of the lyrics already posted by one of the list
members in only one place I saw so far is the song both Banu and Polly
Quote from and earlier post on the list.
Basic lyrics go:
> Radio, remember radio?
> We'd sit and close our eyes and use our imagination.
> Comedy, mystery, fireside chat.
> Together we sat listening nightly to our favorite shows.
> Radio, why did you ever go?
> Oh, won't you please come back and entertain us?
> I long to turn that dial again and hear the past an' smile again.
> Radio I miss you so.
The rest of the song goes on to list a number of those old radio shows
as I said. The word "imagination" is drawn out, if it helps any of you
