Info about song
Capital Radio is a song and an EP by The Clash. The original 2:07-2:09 song has been included as "Capital Radio" or "Capital Radio One" on Capital Radio E.P. (1977), Black Market Clash (1980), Clash on Broadway (1991), The Story of the Clash, Volume 1 (1988), From Here to Eternity: Live (1999), The Essential Clash (2003), and Singles Box (2006). Lyrically, the song is an attack on the music policy of what was (at the time) London's only legal commercial music radio station, which played mainstream chart hits and little if any punk. It mentions the station's then Head of Music, Aidan Day - "He picks all the hits they play/to keep you in your place all day". The "Capital Radio One" variation may allude to BBC Radio 1. The song ends with a parody of one of Capital's actual jingles of the period; the band replaces the lyric "in tune with London" with "in tune with nothing" Read more on Last.fm.
