FlinterFile: Harry Chapin- W.O.L.D.
In 1974, Harry Chapin made a song about the radio. It was the time that DJ’s had a lot of influence on the music that was played in their show. Just like it is now, stations could change their format and therefore change DJ’s. Many DJ’s did want to be on air, so they looked for another station, and cared less about their private life. As Harry Chapin was promoting his music, he got to know quite some DJ’s as he played in their shows. The song was inspired by several of them, and he thought that it would be good to write a song about DJ’s if you wanted to get your music on air. The station WOLD exists, but it would rather be a play on the word WORLD. It hit the charts at number 36 in the US and 34 in the UK. Enjoy
