Turn Your Radio Song Lyrics

Songwriters: BRUMLEY SR., ALBERT E.

Come and listen in to a radio station
Where the mighty hosts of heaven sing
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
If you want to feel those good vibrations
Coming from the joy that His love can bring
Turn you radio on, turn your radio on.
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on and glory share
Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master’s radio
Get in touch with God, and turn your radio on.

Everybody has a radio receiver
All you got to do is listen for the call
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
If you listen in you will be a believer
Leanin’ on the truths that’ll never fall
Get in touch with God, turn the radio on.
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on and glory share
Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master’s radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on.
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on and glory share
Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master’s radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on.
Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master’s radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on…

What Was the Inspiration Behind Turn Your Radio On?

Below is a quote from the author himself, Albert E Brumley:

“I wrote ‘Turn Your Radio On’ in 1937, and it was published in 1938. At this time radio was relatively new to the rural people, especially gospel music programs.

I had become alert to the necessity of creating song titles, themes, and plots, and frequently people would call me and say, ‘Turn your radio on, Albert, they’re singing one of your songs on such-and-such a station.’

It finally dawned on me to use their quote, ‘Turn your radio on,’ as a theme for a religious originated song, and this was the beginning of ‘Turn Your Radio On’ as we know it.”
