The Boat That Rocked

The Boat That Rocked, the new comedy about rock and roll on the high seas from filmmaker Richard Curtis. In 1966 -- arguably British pop music’s finest era -- the BBC played only two hours of rock and roll every week. But pirate radio blasted rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day. And 25 million people -- more than half the population of Britain—listened to these pirates every single day.
