"Transmitter, picking up something good/ Hey, Radio Head/ The sound of a brand new world!" -Talking Heads
Another example of how everyone relays a wavelength.
DAVID BYRNE co-wrote and starred in an indie film called "TRUE STORIES" in 1986. Naturally the TALKING HEADS made a soundtrack record, including this song:
TALKING HEADS -"Radio Head" (1986)
The trick was that, in the film, the songs were sung by the actors. "Radio Head" was sung by TITO LARIVA, backed up by famed accordianist Esteban "Steve" Jordan and his band.
Tito Lariva had been a pioneer in the Los Angeles Punk scene with his band THE PLUGZ. They're most famous for their cover of "Secret Agent Man" as "Hombre Secreto", and for their Morricone-esque work on the "REPO MAN" soundtrack. He then fronted THE CRUZADOs with their hit "Motorcycle Girl". And he's been a staple in Robert Rodriguez films as TITO + TARANTULA from the "El Mariachi" era to the theme for "MACHETE".

An English band named ON A FRIDAY was signed in the early 90's, but then changed their name to RADIOHEAD based on this song. Here's THOM YORKE signaling his feelings:
RADIOHEAD -"Creep" (1992)
"Baby, you're mind is a radio
Got a reciever inside my head
Baby, I'm tuned to your wavelength
Let me tell you what it says..."
