SEX AND BROADCASTING is a hilarious and heartfelt documentary about New Jersey's WFMU, the strangest and (some say) greatest radio station in the world and one man's attempt to keep it alive and independent. As station manager Ken Freedman stares down the barrel of a recession, while fending off the ever encroaching threat of commercial media, he struggles to keep his rebellious volunteer army of outsiders together. At 51 years old, Ken’s whole life is strapped to this dream, but will his life-long effort be enough to keep it alive?
With a roster of supporters like the Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Beastie Boy Ad-Rock, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, the film demonstrates how WFMU offers itself as a critical model – a reminder of an American tradition that values freedom and independence above all else. A Factory 25 Release.
SEX AND BROADCASTING is available on Vimeo OnDemand March 30, and Amazon, iTunes, and other digital platforms on May 20th.
