James ‘Radio’ Kennedy inducted into high school’s Hall of Fame

ANDERSON, S.C. — James “Radio” Kennedy, whose story was made into the movie Radio, will now be immortalized at the high school that helped give him a better chance at life.

The school, T.L. Hanna High School, inducted Radio into its Hall of Fame Friday during halftime of the school’s football game, WHNS reported.

Radio first came to T.L. Hanna in 1965, and football coach Harold Jones took him under his wing.

School officials described Radio as “having a permanent smile and always willing to show compassion to others,” according to WHNS.
