Ever wonder what Queenstown was like in the 80's?
Remember when The Mall was Queenstown Central, traffic lights were as rare as non-smoking bars and a coffee was instant and bottomless? 1987. Radio K.A.O.S. is an independent community station full of colourful Disc Jocks and outrageous clients and the owner Errol Spearmee is the toast of the town! That is until one Black Tuesday when the stock market crashes and Giant Radio move in...
