Q-SKY is the #1 radio station in Los Angeles mainly because of the music they play, and running the station the way they want to. It has led them to a ratings success. The interesting radio personalities include: Jeff Dugan, rebellious head of the radio station; Mother, who is burned out from being a DJ; Eric Swan, a self centered romantic who wants more than just being a DJ; The Prince of Darkness, the hip night DJ; and Laura Coe, the easy-going type. The movie focuses on the battle between Jeff and his corporate bosses, who want more advertising and less music. Written by

Much of the plot of the movie is about the management of the station resisting the push to change to stations format to include more commercials than music. Tom Petty, who has a cameo in the film, fought his own battle against his recorded label over the album "Hard Promises". The album had been given the superstar price of $9.89, versus $8.98. Petty balked at the change, threatening to hold up the album's release.
Much like the characters in FM, this stand won Petty a loyal fan base standing behind him in support. See more
