WRUW 50th Anniversary! Post-film Panel Discussion!
United States | 2014 | Tim K. Smith
Case Western Reserve University’s college radio station, WRUW 91.1 FM, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. This independent, free-thinking broadcaster is to commercial radio stations what the Cinematheque is to multiplex movie theaters. So tonight we salute our fellow alternative programmers with a recent documentary about another of America’s longtime non-commercial, indie radio stations, WFMU in NJ. Listener-supported WFMU is the longest running freeform radio station in the U.S., but raising money remains a challenge. In this acclaimed film, we discover how station manager Ken Freeman tackles the problem. A panel discussion about college radio in Cleveland will follow the screening. Cleveland theatrical premiere. DCP. Total approx. 120 min.
Screening sponsored by WRUW; thanks to Jim Szabo.
