"Program Director" as written by Glen Ballard, Marc Andrew Roberge and Jerry Harrison....
Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

This one time I flip, call the radio
Man play the record that I been loving so
I sing with the singer
Dance to the flow
I hear my request coming out the stereo
At one time there was a rhythm on my stereo
Pick up the phone line
Send my jam down the radio

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

So call up, call up I wanna hear the performance
Catch a wave on the air today
Call up, call up bring a rhythm and a chorus
I want to hear it on the air today

One time on the stereo
You could move to a past time from the radio
A rhythm I could groove to

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

So call up, call up I wanna hear the performance
Catch a wave on the air today
Call up, call up bring a rhythm and a chorus
I want to hear it on the air today

It takes me home
Take me home
I listen to the music, the music will take me home

Shake the floor, move the room with the bass line
Pay my respect to drummy as he keep time
Crank the volume now the song is all mine
Come sound system make the rhythm climb

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

    General CommentI have always thought this is about OAR not really being mainstream, like on the radio, yet everyone I know loves/enjoys OAR.

    General Commentbut I know a lot of people who love OAR and I only know of one radio station, around NY at least, that ever plays their songs. And they've only started since this CD came out and they sold out madison square garden.
    anyone else think this is one of the most annoying songs they have by the way?

    General CommentI agree that this song certainly is annoying. I absolutely love OAR, but it is so repetitive and gets to be a little much after you have heard the words "program director" about a hundred times.

    General CommentI didn't like this song at all until I heard it live, live it was incredible but I still really don't care for the studio version.

    General CommentI don't think it's really about radio or radio play at all...I think it's about "God or a lack thereof" This is actually a good song, if you just listen to it and enjoy the jam, maybe smoke, go see the show, dance with some good ppl. Def a good time...G Love is better though
