Radio Ghost


Music by Whitney Smith, lyrics by Victor Coleman, 1982, SOCAN


Crystals and mystery

Glass tubes and History

Wavelengths and decibels

It was impossible!

Ghost, Radio Ghost.


Watching the ripples spread

What have the angels said?

Something about the waves

Circling like little slaves

Ghost, Radio Ghost.


Depressed! Time to take a holiday

He'd invent a better way possessed!


Will they remember him

Poor old man Fessenden

He was no businessman

Fate gave him other plans

Ghost, Radio Ghost.


Electromagnets would be revolution'ry

It was pollution-free!

Voices won't cloud the world

Ghost, Radio Ghost.
