The movie is mildly entertaining. Mostly for the music and it does have some of those "radio only" moments where the fact of only a couple of people or even just one person communicating allows for some humanity and intimacy. But it also showed that side of radio, the egoism which always disgusts me, the "star" factor which I've never liked because it is too often assumed and not awarded and about which I had direct confrontations with peoples who thought that their ego vision was The Vision. Pirate radio was often hugely indulgent (the actual as well as the movie) and that has always been anathema to me. I've always tried for real people who really had something to share besides their need to be a center of attention. Rant rant.

Re: non com

I get what you're saying very well. Been there and witnessed that myself. Still do, for that matter.

Love, C .
