A band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that wanted classical music, and nothing else, on the airwaves.
Scenes were filmed with James Corden as a rival DJ sabotaged by the Radio Rock crew. These were cut from the film but are available as deleted scenes included on most home video releases.
So, how 'bout it then?
Maxell brand tape reels of 1970s and '80s vintage can be seen in some scenes.
This film is dedicated to all who worked and broadcast on the pirate stations - all those wonderful years, all day and all of the night.
