Allan H. Weiner has always believed that the airwaves are free and rightfully belong to the people. The hardships that Weiner endured to bring Radio New York International and other pirate stations into being are legendary. The FCC's illegal seizure of his radio ship the M/V Sarah in 1987 made headlines around the world. Over the years, the FCC has targeted Weiner and done everything in its power to destroy his life. In spite of this, Weiner has persevered, and continues to work towards a future when the airwaves are open to all who choose to use them, and the world becomes a better place because of the free transmission of knowledge. His story is both a heartwarming tale of an electronic genius at work and a chilling indictment of governmental disregard for personal liberties and free speech.
