This song won the "Single of the Year" category in the CFNY "U-Know awards.
First full length album, includes the tracks "Radio Silence", "Video Verite", "Take Me To War" and "Shellshocked".
It was produced by Kevin Doyle, Chris Wardman, and Jasper. Radio Silence was recorded in 1980 and was Blue Peter's first full studio album.
The songs are about war and relationships. Tracks include "Video Verite", a song about nostalgia for the future; "Radio Silence", a dance floor friendly song about being the bombardier; and the album closer "Take Me To War", about invasion preparedness.
Blue Peter was formed in 1978. In 1979 they released "Test Patterns For Living" on one of Canada's first "Indie" labels-Ready Records.
It included the songs "Factory Living" and "Same Old Place". "Factory Living" was played heavily on Toronto's new music station CFNY-FM.
