FM

Set in a slick little LA music station, QSKY (7.11 on your FM dial), FM barely concerns itself with the daily business of radio. Really it's the story of a group of hip (but nice) dedicated broadcasters, led by sexy, buddy-hugging Jeff Dugan (Brandon), out to combat the interfering idiocy of the indentured slaves of the network corporation. Dugan, who's heavily into the music biz, is against commercials on commercial radio (but since QSKY pumps out an endless stream of Ronstadt, the Eagles and Queen, wouldn't a few mindless jingles go unnoticed?) The crunch comes when Dugan is forced to resign after refusing to broadcast a recruiting ad from the army. His crew of husky-voiced neurotics pull themselves together and start a sit-in. Much solidarity and hugs. Deus-ex-machina, the head of the corporation flies into LA, and as you might guess, he admires guts...A lot of Pie in the QSKY.
