Most of us turn on our music at full volume to drown out our thoughts and get our day off to a head start. To thank the radio for giving us music, the Kendalls released “Thank God for the Radio.”
“Thank God for the Radio” is a country song written by Robert Jones and Max Burns and recorded by Kendalls. The Kendalls, consisting of Royce Kendall and his daughter Jeannie Kendall, were a country music duo from St. Louis, Missouri.
“Thank God for the Radio” is one of Kendall’s songs to top the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, along with other singles “Heaven’s Just a Sin Away” and “Sweet Desire”.
the meaning behind the song
We all go through lonely, dark times and sometimes we don’t have anyone else to turn to. Music has always been with us. Some even inspire me to keep moving forward, remind me to be happy, and make new songs.
The Kendalls recorded “Thank God for the Radio”. Sometimes the only thing that keeps us company is the radio playing the songs we love to sing, dance and jam with.
The songs we hear on the radio are also meaningful to us. The music might be something you play with your family. Or I heard it on the radio one day and it became an instant favorite. Or it may remind you of a lover who broke your heart and hurt your feelings. Hmm.
The Kendalls really made their point when they sang “Thank God for the Radio.” Thank God for the radio (and the songs we can totally relate to) that will be our friend whenever we feel lonely or sad.
