"Corporate FM" Seattle Showing

 ...the killing of local commercial radio
DJs have a gift of listening to the best of their communities and then presenting that back to them. When live local voices are replaced with prerecorded and satellite programs, it ends an age-old symbiotic relationship between radio and the community. Why did radio DJs lose their power to pick music? See Corporate FM, the film that exposes conglomerate radio and the role of Private Equity in media consolidation. By investigating how the financial system gutted commercial radio instead of growing it, documentary film-makers Kevin McKinney & Jill McKeever show how independent radio is being monopolized by a few corporate owners and the effects on jobs and our communities.
