freedom to the airwaves!
20 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

nice history of low wattage radio and the struggle for small, truly independent, neighborhood community broadcasting. makes you want to set up your own station just to keep commercial-free speech on the air. also covers the consolidation of media outlets and the WTO protests. i'm sure the founding fathers would have approved of this film! patriotism is standing up for the ideals of freedom our country was founded on, not standing idly by as all our media are sold out to monolithic corporate entities who see nothing more than their bottom line. the airwaves are a public trust, like our state parks, and should serve more than the lowest common denominator. the voice of the people should be heard!
