Boss Radio

(Bring Back The Real Don Steele)

Midsummer 1970
Vin Scully calls another Dodger loss
Time to dial in Boss Radio
At 93-AM
We get the message everyday on KHJ . . .

We pass the waning day
Hearing our hero say his mad ecstatic spiel
Ask anyone: they know
It's not Boss Radio without The Real Don Steele

Along the Sunset Strip
The last remaining hippies make their freak appeal
And even they say so:
It's not Boss Radio without The Real Don Steele
Bring back The Real Don Steele

I can't find my groove at Zuma Beach
I prefer the lazy way we go
Whistling down Sunset listening to Boss Radio
Needing Three Dog Night to guide us each
Safely through the hazy daydream glow
Blasting Tommy Roe on Boss Radio

From 9am-noon
The voice of Charlie Tuna serves a perfect meal
We dig him even though
It's not Boss Radio without The Real Don Steele
Bring back The Real Don Steele

I can't find my groove at Zuma Beach
I prefer the lazy way we go
Whistling down Sunset listening to Boss Radio
Needing Three Dog Night to guide us each
Safely through the hazy daydream glow
Blasting Tommy Roe on Boss Radio

We know Tina Delgado is alive! alive! alive!
Robert W. Morgan's warning "Zap! You're Morganized!"
Shadoe Stevens and Humble Harve take a place in the way we feel
But it isn't Boss Radio without The Real Don Steele
Bring back The Real Don Steele

I can't find my groove at Zuma Beach
I prefer the lazy way we go
Whistling down sunset listening to Boss Radio
Needing Three Dog Night to guide us each
Safely through the hazy daydream glow
The Real Don Steele presiding on Boss Radio
