At the wrong end of the highway,
When the long night has no end.
When there’s no one there beside me,
‘Til I hold you once again.
Thank God for the radio when I’m on the road.
When I’m far from home and feelin’ blue.
Thank God for the radio playin’ all night long;
Playin’ all the songs that mean so much to me and you.
Thank God for the radio.
Music is one of the best gifts God has ever given us. But more than that, it’s through the radio where we can experience the greatest of music. Although we are now living in an era where advanced technology dominates, still, like the Kendalls, we thank God for the radio. For the music when we’re far from home and feeling blue… WE THANK GOD FOR EVERYTHING!
‘Thank God for the Radio’
“Thank God for the Radio” is a 1984 single by The Kendalls. “Thank God for the Radio” was The Kendalls’ third and last number one country hit. In addition, the single went to number one for one week and spent a total of twelve weeks on the country chart.
The father and daughter duo of The Kendalls created a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary Country music, sparked by Jeannie’s soaring, sensuous vocals. Her voice, a high lonesome honky-tonk, has a beautiful range that drips pure emotion.
These long forgotten and often overlooked recordings are a stellar example of pure true-to-the-roots country music.
The Kendalls were an American country music duo, consisting of Royce Kendall (born Royce Kykendall in Saint Louis, Missouri, September 25, 1935 – May 22, 1998), and his daughter Jeannie Kendall (born October 30, 1954).
Between the 1960s and 1990s, they released sixteen albums on various labels, including five on Mercury Records. Between 1977 and 1985, 22 of their singles reached the top 40 on Billboards country singles charts, including three number one hits, “Heaven’s Just a Sin Away” (also a No. 69 pop hit), “Sweet Desire”, and “Thank God for the Radio”; eight additional singles reached the Top Ten.
