The Golden Age of Wireless is the debut album by Thomas Dolby. Released in 1982, the album contains the pop hit "She Blinded Me with Science" in its later resequencings (see below). Following the album's overall theme of radio are the songs "Airwaves", "Commercial Breakup", and "Radio Silence," along with songs about the modern world ("Windpower", "Flying North", "Europa and the Pirate Twins").

Talk to anyone who was the right age in the early '80s for both pop radio and the dawn of MTV, and "She Blinded Me with Science" will inevitably come up. The most famous song from the reissued version of the album, it's a defiantly quirky, strange number that mixes its pop hooks with unusual keyboard melodies pitched very low and a recurrent spoken word interjection ("Science!") from guest vocalist/video star Magnus Pike.

Despite its' age The Golden Age of Wireless still holds up just fine and is a must have for any lover of intellectual lyrics and masterful instrumentation. Thomas didn't actually vanish following the spectacular success of She Blinded Me With Science. His followup to Wireless, The Flat Earth, took his talents into a broader array of musical styles and featured another genuine hit, Hyperactive. The third album, Aliens Ate My Buick, was a mixed bag of tracks that didn't do as well
