Daryl Mosley “Transistor Radio”
Americana Highways is hosting this video premiere of Daryl Mosley’s song “Transistor Radio,” which is the first single and video from Daryl’s upcoming second solo album, Small Town Dreamer, due to be released on November 5 via Pinecastle Records. Small Town Dreamer was produced by Danny Roberts and Daryl Mosley.
“Transistor Radio” is Daryl Mosley on bass and lead vocals; Danny Roberts on mandolin; Tony Wray on guitar and banjo; Adam Haynes on fiddle; Justin Moses on dobro; and Jaelee Roberts on harmony vocals.
The video was directed and edited with videography by Brian Smith, and produced by Ethan Burkhardt of Pinecastle Records. (Brian Smith also shot and edited Bobby and Teddi Cyrus’ music video that features Billy Ray Cyrus: “Roll That Rock Away.”). Daryl Mosley’s music is steeped in nostalgia in a solid classic self-respecting folk Americana style. The video captures this with a little boy at the window, the simple longings of childhood and the irresistible lure of the transistor radio playing Elvis and Bill Monroe.
I wrote ‘Transistor Radio’ with Rick Lang. Rick and I write a couple of times a month and he always comes in with unique ideas. Rick was talking about how he discovered popular music as a kid, listening to a little transistor. I also grew up with a little portable scanning the AM dial on a summer night looking for a baseball game or the Grand Ole Opry or something hot and blue from Memphis. I first heard the voices of Jack Buck, Johnny Cash, Sam Cooke, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and many others on that little portable. Once the memories started flowing, the song came easily. I knew that this song was one that I had to record myself. It was a special one. – Daryl Mosley
