"Radio Wall of Sound" is a song by the English rock band, Slade, issued as a single in 1991. It was included on their compilation album, Wall of Hits. The song was the first to be credited solely by Jim Lea since "I Won't Let it 'Appen Agen", from the 1973 album Slayed?. It was sung by Lea, with Noddy Holder joining with him in the chorus. The B-side, "Lay Your Love on the Line", was written by Dave Hill and former Wizzard member Bill Hunt. The track was originally for a solo project of Jim Lea. The recording of the track already existed, complete apart from lead vocals. The track was not in Holder's key and so his vocals were dubbed into the chorus, leaving Lea's lead vocal on the verses. The track also features Radio One DJ Mike Read as 'the voice of radio'.
