SEX AND BROADCASTING: A FILM ABOUT WFMU
Tim K Smith
DOC NYC 2014

A portrait of a maverick radio station.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
New Jersey’s WFMU has occupied a unique position as an independent, commercial-free, listener-supported radio station since its inception in the late 1950s. At its heart is the dedicated station manager Ken Freedman, committed to an unstructured, free-form broadcasting model which has won WFMU acclaim as the best – and perhaps weirdest – radio station in the tristate area, if not the country. Facing a budget crisis, can Ken rally both his volunteer staff and his listeners to keep the station afloat?
