Summary
This film pays tribute to the oldest and most ambitious independent, community-based media in the world, KPFA radio. Novelist Alice Walker narrates the vibrant and stormy history of the first listener-sponsored station. The film recounts how KPFA transformed itself into a voice for the radical movements of the 1960s. It surveys the station's spirited coverage of such events as the Civil Rights Movement, the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, the campus Anti-War Movement and the rise of the Black Panther Party. It covers the KPFA community's splintering into factions in the 1970s, and staff and listeners' demonstrations against the Pacifica Foundation's perceived selling out in the late 1990s
