Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The protagonists in this live-action Canadian teen sitcom were a group of quirky high school freshman who lived in the blah and boring town of Roscoe. Reacting against the white-bread values of their parents, the conformist propaganda force-fed them in the classroom, and the dull offerings of their local mainstream radio station, the adventurous teen quartet -- Robbie (Nathan Stephenson), Ray (Ali Kaddam), Lily (Kate Todd), and Travis (Nathan Carter) -- launch their own underground radio service, Radio Free Outlet. In between playings of the station's only record (a rendition of "Rico Suave"), the youthful "pirate" DJs provided a voice for the hopes, dreams, fears, and philosophies of their fellow teenagers. Created by Will and Douglas McRobb of Pete and Pete fame, Radio Free Roscoe debuted August 1, 2003, on the Noggin digital-cable network.
