I didn't realize radios were allowed because they have speakers, but

that's great! You're right it's a much better solution. I think

android phones do have an FM receiver as well anyways. So we just need

to tell everyone to bring radios?


How do I get the film audio to the group broadcasting the radio? We

can do different stations for different groups in theory, right?
