“Girl with the Blue Transistor” You can stream or purchase the track at all the usual digital providers.
Due to the fair shake they give artists, my current favorite is Bandcamp:

GIRL WITH THE BLUE TRANSISTOR   BY JOHN FLYNN

JUST A LITTLE KID SO MUCH MUSIC HELD
INSIDE HER HEART AND TO HER EAR
A.M. STATIONS THAT SHE LOVED SO WELL
PLAYING ALL THE HITS SO LOUD AND CLEAR
AND ALL THE PICTURES ON HER BEDROOM WALL
WERE OF GEORGE AND RINGO, JOHN AND PAUL

PHILLY RADIO JUST COULD NOT RESIST HER
TALKIN' BOUT THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE TRANSISTOR

MUSIC COMING THROUGH THAT LITTLE HEADPHONE WIRE
TUCKED UNDERNEATH THOSE GOLDEN CURLS
ALWAYS DIALED IN TO HER HEART'S DESIRE
ALTHOUGH THE BOSS JOCKS SAID NO GIRLS
BEHIND THE MIC THEY DIDN'T KNOW ONE DAY
SHE'D BE TELLING ALL THE BOYS WHAT SONGS TO PLAY

PHILLY RADIO JUST COULD NOT RESIST HER
TALKIN' BOUT THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE TRANSISTOR

SHE TOOK RADIO TO SCHOOL EACH DAY
TOOK THAT RADIO TO BED AT NIGHT
IF YOU ASK WHY SHE'LL ONLY SMILE AND SAY
THAT RADIO MADE THINGS ALRIGHT
THAT DJ ALWAYS HAD THE POWER TO PLAY
A SONG TO LIFT HER UP AND TAKE HER FAR AWAY

RADIO RADIO-OH-OH-OH-OH
RADIO RADIO-OH-OH-OH-OH

AGAIN AND AGAIN A LITTLE ANTENNA
FOUND SONGS NO ONE HAD LISTENED TO
THAT'S WHY I'M HERE SINGING FOR YOU

FROM SOUTH PHILLY STOOPS, BLANKETS ON THE BEACH
FROM PASSING CARS ON KELLY DRIVE
THROUGH THE WINDOW SCREENS UP IN THE GREAT NORTHEAST
HER VOICE WOULD ALWAYS MAKE US SMILE
WHILE OTHER STATIONS PLAYED THE SAME OLD SONG
EVERYBODY COOL WAS TURNING HELEN ON

PHILLY RADIO JUST COULD NOT RESIST HER
TALKIN' BOUT THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE TRANSISTOR
NEVER QUITE THE SAME ONCE THE MUSIC KISSED HER
WHEN SHE WAS THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE TRANSISTOR

RADIO RADIO-OH-OH-OH-OH
RADIO RADIO-OH-OH-OH-OH
