Radio Waves revolves around a 1970s Auckland radio station awash with lustful and assertive males. As the first episode opens, drive time DJ Win Savage (Grant Bridger) blithely annoys an advertiser on-air, while Andy Anderson plays a hippy jock who raves about connecting. Alan Dale (Ugly Betty) makes his screen debut as station manager Jack. The many women on staff — including new arrival Jess (Jacqui Dunn) and real life author Frances Edmond — snipe and try to get some work done amidst all that male ego. The show was short-lived, but its urban setting and big city go-getters signaled a changing face for Kiwi screen drama.
Well there you are Auckland — another morning of pure vocal gold piped into every home.– DJ Win Savage (Grant Bridger), shortly after saying the wrong thing on air
