Charlie Dunlap is different from all the other boys of his age. Not just because he was born in front of a Buick car during a traffic jam, but that when he was older he favoured listening to the radio traffic reports read by his hero 'Sky King' Alan Davenport, rather than follow the trend of his friends and watch the baseball. When he meets Amy, his life becomes a muddle. He does not know which way to turn, the radio or his new girl. Only Amy can help him.
