I haven't had a chance to see it yet, hopefully today. Glad to see it is getting decent reviews. Pretty much everyone I know who doesn't know who Conchords are (which is pretty much everyone I know!) wants to see this movie.

One of my Facebook friends is a DJ (30 + years) and he posted that he really liked the movie. Interesting what he and his die hard vet radio friends have commented. Love that the labels on the 45s were not always the right record labels;

Just got back from seeing the movie "PIRATE RADIO". Great job from Phillip Semyour Hoffman and hearing all those great songs of the era. And what a super job of showing the radio equipment of 1966. Love those old Gates Boards. Amazing that at the height of the British Invasion in 1966, England didn't even have 1 hour of Pop music on the radio with their government broadcasts!

"But Lord there were so many mistakes. Except for "Whiter Shade of Pale", none of the labels matched the artists. The Favag clock was wrong, was an 80's model. Stanton 500 cartridges did not exist then. 45's with the smaller holes were played on QRK turntables, which you could not do because the inner part of the platter is recessed for 45's. You would need to play it on top of an LP or punch out the center. I hope the transmitter was off when they were climbing the tower. There weren't any Audiopak Big Blues in the 60's.... the Spotmaster cart machines were on the mark, but the Criterion 90 Gates machine was not out yet... Gates still was making the ATC series machines. The Yard board was cool and i liked when the jock broke off the cap on the QRK turntable switch."

"Did the credits list a technical consultant who you can e-mail and take to task? At least Eric Bogosian consulted with an SBE's worth of engineers while putting together "Talk Radio".

"Talk Radio and Fraiser were spot on with equipment.

"Thing I caught was that Pirate Radio ended in late 1967 and they were playing Herb Alpert "This Guys In Love With You" from 1968. Maybe they had an advance copy!"

"The also played a remake of "Judy In Disguise"."

Yeah - couldn't get the rights for the original. JOHN FRED DEAD!

I'm going to get it on DVD today, finally. I hired it weeks ago and never watched it. Silly me. But finally, after months of it being in stores, 'm buying The Boat That Rocked! :D
