Dugan, who's heavily into the music biz, is against commercials on commercial radio (but since QSKY pumps out an endless stream of Ronstadt, the Eagles and Queen, wouldn't a few mindless jingles go unnoticed?) Full Review
It gets the standard rock-movie formula backwards by trying to base a revolution around some of the safest, least revolutionary music in the history of rock.
Embarrassing youth cult film, founded on the shaky premise that the staff of a "progressive" LA rock station have to fight their management for the right to play Olivia Newton-John. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- Mull, as a spaced-out DJ, steals the show, emanating energy with which neither the other actors nor the music can compete. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- A preposterously self-serving variation on 1960's themes.
New York Times
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The "us against the establishment" plotline is hoary and silly, and the movie fares better when it focuses on specific character incidents rather than any greater themes. Full Review
The groovy deejays at L.A.'s hippest radio station rail against the revenue-hungry corporation that pulls all the strings. Company bigwigs want to load up the airwaves with snazzy rock-and-roll commercials for the Army, but the jocks bristle at the new "improvements" and eventually go on strike to regain control. A crowd of supporters gathers outside as the radio personalities commandeer the station in order to spread their positive, carefree message to the public. Maybe Mull's finest performance, major contemporary music star power in cameos and performances, and a sizzling soundtrack.
