Trivia

As the series was originally filmed with a completely different cast and in a completely different location, the first two episodes, showing the group form Radio Free Roscoe, and their first times on air, were filmed quickly and on lower budgets, including lesser quality sound and cameras. This was done mostly as a test run to see if the cast worked well or if yet another change had to be made quickly, and were done quickly and with less money under the knowledge that they wouldn't air at least for a while, and any network showing the series would skip to airing the "real" episodes and abandon these ones for the moment. The only reason these two episodes were completed were with the hope that they would air sometime in the future, or be included as extras on a DVD. They did make their television debut the next year, and are included in the Season 1 Greatest Hits DVD. See more »

nice friendships
16 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Robbie, Ray and Lily are childhood friends and outsider 9th graders in Henry Roscoe High. Lily is a musician with stage fright. Wisecracking Ray is secretly in love with Lily. Robbie gets a DJ job at the school station Cougar Radio. However he hates the prim DJ Kim Carlisle under the control of Principal Daniel Waller. He befriends mercurial new kid Travis (who lived in HongKong) to start a rebel radio station in an abandoned industrial warehouse. They are Robbie "Question Mark" McGrath, Travis "Smog" Strong, Ray "Pronto" Brennan and Lily "Shady Lane" Randall of Radio Free Roscoe.

This is 'Pump Up the Volume' with less edge, less anger and more friendship. The rebel radio idea is something that was almost past its best-before-date even before the show started. The actors are also too old to play ninth graders and I don't think the characters ever got out of ninth grade. It would be better to start even a year later as tenth graders. It's less angry than PUtV which is good for a teen TV show although it's not bright sparkly type. The best thing about the show is their friendship. Lily does need a girl friend and Audrey was never a good one. It's not until Victoria Nestorowicz shows up in season 3 that Lily got a great friend in cool beans Parker. The show needs an extra lead actress anyways. Seasons 3 and 4 are better because of that.
