Thanks Jim but its not the one I'm after

Its the one that starts

I've been talking to the man on the radio
Though I know he cant hear aword that Isay
he just keeps right on talking and giving me the time
and the weather and the wavelength
and I've just called to say ay ay

He understands, the way that I fe e el
With One hand etc

Any more offers of naming the authur please?

I believe the song's actual title is 'One Hand On The Radio' and it was written by Bill Caddick/Pete Bond.

It's a track on Angus Finnan's CD "North Wind"
Lyrics from his website

http://www.aengusfinnan.com/homepage.html

CD Notes:
Lyrics & Music: Bill Caddick and Pete Bond, Rough Music) Arranged by: Aengus Finnan, David Rogers, Trevor Mills
This one is on here for Peter Gzowski and the thousands of lives he touched through the radio in cars, restaurants, bedrooms, basement workshops, and at kitchen sinks across the country. And profound thanks to the CBC and North American Folk DJs who keep the music that matters on the air.

ONE HAND ON THE RADIO

I've been talking at the man on the radio
Thought I know he can't hear a word that I say
No he keeps right on talking telling me the time
And the weather and the wavelengths and his disc of the day

He understands the way that I feel
One hand on the radio, one on the wheel

There's no car lights in the mirror only starlights above
All the truck driving heroes have called it a day
Just the whine of the wheels as they eat up the miles
And the raindrops on the window and the night owl DJ

Don't you tell me there's a wreck on the road ahead
Don't you tell me that the rain's going to turn into snow
Keep me going, stop me thinking, fill up my mind
For without you on the airwaves the night goes so slow

Guess I'll pull in for a coffee call her up on the phone
And across the dark hours she'll float down the line
Saying don't drive if you're tired I miss you too
So keep it coming Mr. DJ, help me home one more time

Thank you very much for confirming what I heard.
I booked Bill a few years back not realising until last week that this was one of his albeit in collaboration.
Well you learn something all the time.
Cheers

Would Billboard's web site convince you?

It says:

One Hand on the Radio

Artist:
Aengus Finnan

Written by:
Caddick, Bill/Bond, Pete

*
And while you're at it, notice the correct spelling: Aengus, not Angus.

It IS well sung indeed - But sadly we have another example of crediting a song to whoever has recorded it , rather than who wrote it .
Is it usually a case of insufficient info on the Recotd sleeve ?

On the page that links to the song being sung by AF, in the first paragraph, Caddick and Bond are credited as the writers, Leadfingers. Is that what you meant?

I see lots of that--songs mis or not at all attributed--when I look for lyrics. Seems it's pandemic. Likely the result of

1) ignorance
2) sloppy practices
3) lyric websites built to make a buck
4) people who don't care

Witness the 01 Nov 11 - 10:28 PM post. Just someone who didn't bother to read the thread and then shot from the hip. Sad, really.

Pete Bond sang this at Frodsham folk club a few months ago. It's good to see him doing the clubs again albeit on a not very regular basis. We've got him booked at the Room at the Top folk club at the Red Lion pub in Newburgh, Lancashire on Feb 6th next year (4 miles from M6 J27 - follow A5209 Parbold Tel 01257 464215 for more details)

Crediting the singer rather than the writer is very common in pop music. People seem to think that the song was just lurking undiscovered, and only when a singer performed it did it spring into life. It's a strange attitude but I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised when it spills over into folk.
