In 1986, a Florida satellite television tech named John R. MacDougall successfully intercepted HBO broadcasting for nearly five minutes with a message of protest regarding their rates. For this event, he referred to himself as "Captain Midnight", inspired by this film (which he'd seen a short time earlier). MacDougall was subsequently prosecuted by the FCC, and slapped with a fine of US$5000 and one year of probation. See more »

A typical suburban teen and his friends start their own pirate radio station from the back of a van and become an underground cult hit...John Ireland plays an F.C.C. investigator Hell-bent on pulling the plug, frustrated that he's being outsmarted at every turn.
A very modest production, but still great nostalgic fun for anyone who grew up during the 1970s...contains some super classic rock tunes from Ted Nugent and Rod Stewart. PUMP UP THE VOLUME(1990), a far more "polished" film which starred Christian Slater, had many similar ideas in play, and could almost be seen as a loose remake of CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT.
This film, now forgotten by most, is worth a look regardless of its impoverished origins, and could likely attract a small cult following if it becomes more easily available.
