The Lovereading4Kids comment

Written as a screen play, this is a vivid picture of a group of teenagers who are determined to keep their pirate radio station up and running. It’s all about being heard. But being heard also gets you noticed – in the wrong way. Full of energy, this captures the feel of defiant teenagers determined to do their own thing.

Synopsis

Radio Radio by Graham Marks

A group of kids to start a radio station. Setting it up in a fortuitously empty flat, they soon find themselves not only having to deal with the complications of running a pirate radio station but also fending off the attentions of competing broadcasters. And all this alongside their relationships, jealousies and desires to be independent.
