“Radio Waves” was the lead single issued from Roger Waters’ sophomore solo LP “Radio K.A.O.S.”, a concept album centered on a wheelchair-bound superhuman with the ability to hear and manipulate wireless communication signals. “Radio K.A.O.S.” was released in 1987, during the aftermath of Waters’ acrimonious departure from Pink Floyd. As his former band also released an album that year (“A Momentary Lapse Of Reason”), Waters found himself competing with Pink Floyd for UK and US chart placement.

Years later, Waters would express regret over the production style of “Radio K.A.O.S.”: “We tried too hard to make it sound modern. I allowed myself to get pushed down roads that were uncomfortable for me. I should never have made that record.”
