"Heard It on the Radio" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Heard It On the Radio" is a super-wholesome song focused on one thing: having a good, clean time at a summer beach party. While it includes some very light flirtation ("I smile and I tan and her sandals in her hand / Rockin' the shades, you can almost see the eyes lock"), there's absolutely no other mature content whatsoever -- making this a fun pick for younger and older ears alike.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
Many of the stars of Disney's wildly popular, music-oriented sitcoms are better eye-candy than singers -- and the same can be said for Ross Lynch. The cute-as-a-button teen has an upbeat, if not strong, sound that's similar to Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath, another artist whose vocals leave a little to be desired.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about whether it's a good idea for actors who portray musicians on TV -- like Ross Lynch, who plays Austin Moon on the Disney series Austin & Ally -- to release real songs on the music scene.
Is Ross Lynch talented enough to try to make it as a musician on his own merits, or is his appeal inextricably linked to his role as Austin Moon?
