*********************************

Welcome to the Talk Radio web site.  This film is one that Oliver Stone himself would never recommend.  It is angry, dark and dangerous.  In our opinion, however, it would be a tragedy to miss this one.  Dark and dangerous- - yes. 

However, this thriller is perhaps the most interesting social commentary that Oliver Stone has made yet.  Based on the true story of Alan Berg, a talk radio host who was killed by an anti-Semitic group in the early 1980ís, Talk Radio is the  story of a loud- mouth,button- pushing talk radio host named Barry Champlain (Eric Bogosian).
