    Why is it I only count eight songs here?

    “Transmission” is one of the great unknown tracks,as most people only know of “Love Will Tear Us Apart” when Joy Division comes up in conversation.Or they may know that Ian Curtis committed suicide.Which reminds me…

    What about “Signals Over The Air” by Thursday? If you're familiar with the early Thursday works you'll understand the Ian Curtis connection.

    “Radio Waves” by Roger Waters?
    “On The Air” by Peter Gabriel?
    “Signal To Noise” by Peter Gabriel?
    “The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)” The Doors?

    Wow,I've got a whole new post lined up right here! ;p

  2. Looking forward to your eight (or should that be nine!) All those songs you cite are virginal to my ears so it should be a beauty. I've left out intentionally omitted some obvious flogged ones like Radio Lady Gaga, Who Listens to the Radio Static & Video Killed the DXer. 🙂 Also left out a great Aussie indie song (commercial hit) from the nineties which refers to 'static' repeatedly in the chorus! I can't for the life of me remember the name of the track. There are some tracks which have a rather tenuous connection to tropo propagation such as Under The Milky Way or In the Air Tonight.
