Audio/visual unsynchronized: During the dance sequence (filmed at the Rank Ballroom, Watford), there only appear to be about twenty people present. Yet when The Small Faces perform, there seems to be the sound of several hundred teenagers screaming.See more »

Small Faces, Radio London... A time of dreams!, 4 June 2005
Author: mike-1828 from United Kingdom

I've just been watching this on Sky Matinée Movies. I am astonished to find a very young Kenny Everett and other Radio London DJs in this film, as well as the Faces, before they were joined by Rod Stewart. Radio London, for those who can't remember the glory days of UK Offshore Radion was THE Pirate Station which nurtured not only Kenny Everett, but also John Peel etc etc. According to the cast list, Tony Windsor is also there. Worth watching for the nostalgia and all those lovely 1960s memories! I forget the plot, but as a historical record, you can't beat it!. So sad that after his wonderfully inventive Radio Days, on both Radio London with the Kenny and Cash programme, and later with the BBC, over-exposure on TV destroyed Kenny.
