In 2011, the Norwegian parliament voted to turn off the national FM radio grid, and in 2017 all national broadcasts and most commercial local radio were moved to the DAB format. In this charming documentary, we follow the day-to-day operations of the small local station Bygderadio Vest in Volda and Fosnavåg, as they continue their broadcasts over the FM band. THE RADIO GUYS is a warm, comical and very Norwegian film about a group of dedicated older men heroically struggling against technological innovation.
