Get on Board “Pirate Radio”

The 1960s were an incredible period of presidential assassination, political dissent, moral dissolution, sexual revolution, and, not surprisingly, the golden age of rock-and-roll. This movie captures the period’s tension and exuberance through the story of the off-shore (and privately ad-financed) broadcasters who arose to give people the music they wanted when the public tax-payer supported BBC nanny tried to ration rock music. It’s a great story told over one of the best and most integrated sound tracks ever. Two mother figures, one sends her son to the boat to find both his father and himself, the other sends her police to silence the boat and save her children from the evil music. The good mother wins.
