Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The title track of this classic CD was among the first to celbrate the poignant story of a mentally-challenged man in Anderson, SC, the coach who mentored him and the town that came to love him. The story is now the subject of a major film with CUBA GOODING, JR. and ED HARRIS. Chuck's song came to the attention of the movie's creative team who gave Chuck a walk-on in the picture and even included an editted version of his song in the soundtrack. You can hear this classic track its entire form here, as well as other Brodsky classics like the baseball/spy tale "Moe Berg," his road rage anthem "Blow 'em Away" and the rocking "Creepsville."

This singer/songwriter and North Carolina raconteur shows a charming knack for chronicling the foibles of American culture and human relationships. He suggests John Prine and Loudon Wainwright III in his wiry, winking delivery and subject matter, which ranges from the life of baseball legend Moe Berg to apple picking with migrant laborers. (His road-rage anthem, "Blow 'Em Away," has become notorious.) There's ample variety in the Americana musical touches played on Dobro, electric piano, and organ. And a full-out bar-band groove surfaces in spots. But Brodsky's songs are only occasionally revelatory in a manner that distinguishes him from his coffeehouse peers. His strong suit is his humor. Those drawn to the lighter side of Cheryl Wheeler and Ellis Paul will find a kindred spirit in Brodsky. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Serious, and everything in between November 26, 1999
By G Guess
Format:Audio CD
I had the pleasure of attending Mr. Brodsky's performance at a small bookstore. (A BIG thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Walls who arranged the concert.) To say the least, he opened my heart and mind. Chuck has an uncanny ability to write the spoken word and note in a way I have never seen. Whether you enjoy traditional or non traditional, you need to open yourself up to one of Folk's greatest kept secrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! February 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
My brother-in-law introduced us to Chuck Brodsky with this album. Since then we've purchased his two other albums and we were so excited about this young folksinger, that we travelled 300 miles for a moving coffeehouse performance. "Radio" (and for that matter the earlier "Letters in the Dirt") is a charming "first time listen", but we found ourselves replaying each song in order to understand each word and fully appreciate his wonderful poety. Chuck has an uncanny ability to make his characters and stories come to life. It is hard not to be touched. "Radio" get's my album-of-the-year-award!

5.0 out of 5 stars Folk Guitarist's Favorite February 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Mr. Broadsky perform on public radio. I also play folk guitar (just for my family) and I thought his songs were insightful and fun, so I immediatly bought myself the CD "Radio". Now it's one of my favorite CD's (and my cowboy-husband's favorite too)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny-Poetic-Great Sound: A Must! February 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to Chuck Brodsky's music at a recent coffeehouse performance in our area. It was excellent! From the insightful and slightly sentimental (Radio, Come Heres and Been Heres) to the humorous (On Christmas I Got Nothin') to the outrageous (Blow 'Em Away) to the athletic (Hockey Fight Song)--wait, did I say athletic? Brodsky combines great stories with rich music. Radio is currently my favorite CD.
