Movie Info

A middle-aged man looks back on his childhood in Rockaway, N.Y., in a series of vignettes focused on the golden days of radio. Joe (Woody Allen), who narrates, is portrayed as a teenager in the film by Seth Green. Eccentric relatives and radio personalities inhabit various stories, including an unlucky aunt (Dianne Wiest), a cigarette girl (Mia Farrow) with career ambitions, and two burglars with excellent timing. Young Joe involves his friends in a scam to earn a decoder ring.

Audience Reviews for Radio Days

  • Aug 11, 2015
    Remember the good ole days before the internet? Before even television? Radio was the dominant technology and Allen nostalgically recalls not only the simplicity of those times but how the emerging tech was already shaping the dreams, thoughts, and thus the lives of the listeners. The subject is really too big for the time alloted and so the overall feeling is scattered, but the idea is there, and very nearly resonant.

    Like most other Woody Allen films, "Radio Days" will charm the socks right off of you. It's endearing, undemanding, nostalgic, funny, and most and worst of all, terribly underrated. Allen has a great sense of direction and wonderful feel for comedic timing, and "Radio Days" is yet another example of why he's one of the very best in the business.

    A terrific nostalgic tribute. One of the best works by Allen.
    Lucas M Super Reviewer

    While not one of his better films, Allen's playful reverence of this bygone era will most likely leave you with a smile on your face.
