Local DJs want to play the bands that they love. Corporate HQ stands in the way. Where does the community end up in this fight?  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. That hurts emerging bands, small charities and even the emergence of new ideas on a local level. The film also uncovers how high finance has gutted the medium though private equity firms such as Bain Capital.
