The FCC comes to town. Hard Harry holds one final broadcast, taking his transmitter mobile so it is harder to trace. The FCC catches Harry at the high school where he tells a group of listening students to start their own stations. He is arrested. As the movie ends we hear others, including teachers, who have started their own pirate radio stations.manthabeat
Revealing mistake: Near the middle of the movie Samantha Mathis is walking across the high school campus. The name of the high school in the movie is "Hubert Humphrey High School, " but behind her, above the library door, a sign says "Saugus High School Library". Shows better in 4.3 aspect. (00:31:45)
Trivia: Every time Harry plays a recording of "Everybody Knows" to start his show, he uses a different format. First it's a reel-to-reel tape, then a vinyl record, then a cassette tape.
Question: How come Mark's parents couldn't hear him while he was broadcasting as Hard Harry in their basement? Wouldn't they hear their son talking?
