Known by his nickname “Radio” for his fascination with the electronic device, James Robert “Radio” Kennedy (played by Cuba Gooding, Jr.) is taken under the wing of T.L. Hanna High School football coach, Harold Jones (played by Ed Harris) much to the displeasure of the local community.

Based on a true story, “Someone to Lean On” published in the 1996 issue of Sports Illustrated magazine, Radio chronicles how a mentally challenged young man manages to inspire a small town despite the many physical set-backs and prejudices he faces.

See how Cuba Gooding, Jr. shares his unique tune with the world around him. Watch Radio, Sunday, November 24th at 3P/2C only on BET.
