Its a very enjoyable movie with a great music soundtrack but do remember
its far from reality, its a good fantasy. Life onboard the radio ships in
the sixties was often difficult and uncomfortable...but the radio format was
electric, something new to the British, and was listened to by up to 25
million!!

"So the hideous New Zealander had lots of Herman's Hermits and Seekers, and Nick Frost's character had only British bands like the Small Faces and Spencer Davis Group," Curtis says.

What makes him think Herman's Hermits weren't Brits? They were from Manchester!
