Radio Days

A middle aged narrator relates stories of Brooklyn upbringing, his neurotic family, summers at the boardwalk, and the urban myths surrounding the radio personalities whose programs him and his friends obsessively followed. Told in a series of vignettes, Woody Allen's Radio Days is warm, nostalgic, and sporadically funny. Though not quite coming together as a cohesive whole, it is assisted by the period detail and music, great sets, and a fine extended cast.
