Radio Castle, the voice of Jerusalem. Your local news broadcast from the bed of housebound ex-fireman, John Edward. His son refuses to join the family business, and his wife is in love with the town's ex-policeman, but transmission never falters. And when the coveted position of Entertainment Secretary at the Jerusalem Social Club comes up, only one man stands between John Edward and his dream - a certain ex-policeman.
