Corporate FM: The Killing of Local Commercial Radio
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 7pm
1301 Jayhawk Blvd. Lawrence, KS 66045 · Cost: Free!
Apr 11, 2013

Shot partly in Lawrence Kansas in the 1990's, Corporate FM shows how the loss of local ownership of KLZR "The Lazer" and other stations across the nation adversely affected their respective communities.

See TRAILER here.

Radio once united entire cities around their local bands, local charities and local businesses. Then corporate greed and financial game players preyed on this industry creating a void in our culture.  Corporate FM follows the tragic story of commercial radio, meanwhile revealing a greater truth about the destruction of the US economy.

Filmmaker in attendance.
