“ CAN YOU BE A RADIO STAR?
Something is going sour at Radio South. The bustling, lively atmosphere of this thriving local radio station, where YOU are a reporter, has taken a turn for the worse. There's a hint of scandal in the air – a scandal that could spell disaster for the station and everyone involved. It is up to YOU to find out who's behind it.
Could it be Gerry Smith, streetwise, always with an eye to the main chance? Could it be Ron, the brash and unpredictable lead singer of the Bandits? Or could it be someone far more sinister?
The answers are hidden somewhere in this whirling adventure of mystery and romance. All YOU have to do is make the choices, decide who to trust and which clues to follow. And if you're lucky - or very clever - you might just win through!
