When Spike gets fired from hospital radio, he decides to launch his own show from a makeshift studio in his dad's shed, under the secret identity of Radio Boy.
Spike quickly becomes an underground hit. But will he handle his newfound fame well? Is calling a homework strike a good idea? will he impress Katherine Hamilton, the girl he wants to marry? Can he keep his identity a secret? the answers to these questions are inside this book. (SPOILER ALERT: mostly the answers are 'no').
