Here's the movie I can't wait to see. It'll be out next spring. It's from Richard Curtis who gave us LOVE ACTUALLY, and FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL (a movie that would be in my top five comedies if it weren't for Andie McDowell) and is about subject matter near and dear to my heart -- pirate radio.
In the 60s when the British invasion was exploding in the US, the only radio in England was the BBC and they were playing Mozart and "Cricket Talk". So some industrious folks started pirate radio stations just outside international waters (Radio Caroline being the big one) and gave kids the Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders and Lulu hits they deserved. This is their story. A story that MUST be told.
If you have memories of listening to Pirate Radio stations, would love to hear them.
And here's the trailer.
