"Radio" is a song by Celtic folk rock band The Corrs. It was released in November 1999 from the album The Corrs Unplugged, recorded from their appearance on MTV Unplugged, with "Dreams" from the same album as a B-side.

The song was originally slated for their previous album Talk on Corners but was shelved after failing to develop a suitable arrangement at the time. An "electric" version appeared on their next studio album In Blue. The single became a chart hit, reaching the top 20 in the British, Irish, and New Zealand charts.

According to Sharon Corr, the Unplugged and In Blue versions of the song were the third and fourth versions respectively to be recorded. The Unplugged version was modeled after the first acoustic demo they had recorded, while the In Blue version was a remake of the second early "dance" version. Caroline Corr stated that after she felt there was little to experiment with on the Unplugged version, the band's programmer suggested adding synthesizers and experimenting with different electric guitar licks for the In Blue version.
