The 1960's - when the transistor radio allowed everyone to listen to the pirates, snuggled up in their bed room, late into the night. John Peel, Johnnie Walker, Dave Lee Travis, Tony Blackburn ... and the list goes on. It was great music, slightly naughty, and great fun. Bands came from nowhere and musical innovation was everywhere. And the pirates opened up the floodgates for commercial radio, the grandfathers of what is happening in the music industry today.
The movie and the CD captures those times perfectly. The CD is not so much a "soundtrack" album as a first class compilation of the brilliant music of the era. There is not a bad track on the album, although it is a pity that bands like the Beatles are missing as they, too, were part of the revolution.
