Synopsis by Steve Blackburn

Hosted by Marvin Scott, this documentary tackles the rambunctious and phenomenal airwave genre of "talk radio," where the content runs the gamut from trash to news. Radio personalities profiled here include Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy, oft-married Larry King, the pioneer of "in-your-face" moderating, Morton Downey Jr., breast-obsessed Howard Stern, right-wing ideologue Rush Limbaugh, and good-natured Dr. Ruth Westheimer. Also covered are Joe Pyne, Bob Grant, Barry Gray, and Don Imus.
