SEX AND BROADCASTING is a human, and humorous, look at New Jersey's WFMU, a radio station that refuses any programming boundaries. Most of it's disc jockeys are unpaid volunteers, working for their love of surprising, spontaneous radio. They play everything from flat-out uncategorizable strangeness to every form of rock and roll, experimental music, jazz, psychedelia, hip-hop, hand-cranked wax cylinders, gospel, Inuit marching bands, R&B, C&W, radio improvisations, spoken-word collages, and throat singers of the Lower East Side. Their captain is station manager Ken Freedman, who has spent the past three decades keeping WFMU alive, independent, and one of a kind. The film weaves personal stories of WFMU's eccentric DJs with an exploration of the 21st-century media landscape that has made the station such a rarity. Can WFMU stay on the air and stay true to it's independent spirit? SEX AND BROADCASTING explores the past and present of this essential, weird, and utterly unique American institution while telling the gripping, yet comical, story of it's fight for survival.
