In the summer of 1986, in the small town of Painter’s Brush, Colorado, Top Gun is premiering, the national debt just hit $2 trillion, and amateur radio DJ Lacey Gibralter has found a mysterious signal on the far end of the AM band.

The Signal leads Lacey to mystery after mystery and an adventure that will change her life forever.

Raised on Radio is inspired by the 1986 Journey album of the same name. And also The Buggles’ Age of Plastic, kind of.

It’s LGBT+ friendly, passes the heck out of the Bechdel test, and has a female protagonist.
