Flight of the Bumblebee (Radio Days)

Saw this in 1987 with my dad (in the theater). It was really good (and quite funny). My dad was from the same generation as Woody Allen. He wasn't really a big Allen fan, but he enjoyed this movie. His own "radio days" weren't quite as good. As a child he wasn't really allowed to listen much. At night he would listen to his dad's radio in the other room, and be disappointed when his father turned it off to go to sleep. In my dad's later years, he would often stay up late to listen to talk radio, in particular the Coast to Coast show.
