Tonight | New Wave: Dare To Be Different on SBS Viceland and SBS on Demand

New Wave: Dare To Be Different on SBS Viceland – U2, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, The Clash: Over half a billion records sold but you may never have heard of them if not for a small suburban radio station on Long Island, NY: WLIR.

In 1982, a small group of radio visionaries knew they couldn’t compete with the mega-stations in New York City.

With one brave decision, they changed the sound of radio forever.

Program Director Denis McNamara, the ‘LIR crew, and the biggest artists of the era tell the story of how they battled the FCC, the record labels, mega-radio and all the conventional rules to create a musical movement that brought the New Wave to America.
