Mister & Mischief Proudly Presents
40 Watts from Nowhere
Live the True Story of a Kickass Radio Rebel
It's 1998. You’ve got an illegal 40-watt transmitter in your bedroom and a copper pipe antenna on your roof. You’ve been running a pirate radio station out of your closet for two and a half years. If the government ever catches you, you’re on the hook for $100,000 in FCC fines and ten years in prison.
A steep price to pay because you hate the Spice Girls.
40 WATTS FROM NOWHERE puts you in the shoes of 90s counterculture icon Sue Carpenter who found herself leading a double life: magazine writer by day, pirate radio host by night. With her illegal station KBLT, Sue captured the attention of misfit music lovers from every walk of life … and the authorities.
Control KBLT 104.7 FM
Part memoir and part playable theatre, this experiential documentary takes you back to the 90s, places you in Sue Carpenter’s in-home DJ booth, and puts you in control of the illegal station. As you control KBLT, be ready to:
- Share your voice
- Select the music to play
- Desperately attempt to avoid the Federal Communications Commission
