"Pirate Radio USA" is a feature length documentary about the underground world of unlicensed radio in the USA, where people play what they want and say what they want- unless the FCC catches them. On the way, witness the rise of Big Media, the growth of Indy Media to encounter it, and witness their showdown over the truth during the 1999 World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle. DJs Him and Her, from their live Pirate Radio USA Studio, take you on a rock-n-roll journey inside rogue radio stations across the country to see why Americans defy federal law to free the radio airwaves.
