The Movie: Radio Days (1987)
What Is It?: Woody Allen’s radio-centric nostalgia fest gains as much appeal from his gauzy direction and cuttingly hilarious writing (“You don’t like it, take the gas pipe!”) as it does from a spectacular cast led by tiny Seth Green as Allen’s pre-teen stand-in and Mia Farrow at her comedic best as the squeaky cigarette girl.
Why Today?: Today is World Radio Day.
