The 50 Greatest Vocoder Songs

#25. Maggotron "Radio Mars"

Year: 1983

Recorded in Ft. Lauderdale by James "Maggotron" McCauley, the 12-inch of "Radio Mars" recently went for over $1,800 on eBay, which, for those doomed souls keeping score, was roughly $300 less than what Kraftwerk's original Musicoder went for in the virtual marketplace. "Radio Mars" is the most expensive vocoder record made by an ex-telephone operator who used to skate backwards to "Turning Japanese" at Superstar Rollerteque in Liberty City.
