Sex and Broadcasting

Asheville FM Fundraiser

May 4th. 9:30pm

SEX AND BROADCASTING is a feature length documentary about New Jersey's WFMU, the world's strangest and most unique radio station, and one man's attempt to keep it alive in the face of recession, the persistent threat of commercial media, and the challenges that come with keeping a rebellious group of outsiders together.

103.3 AshevilleFM is screening Sex and Broadcasting during the Spring Fund Drive as a FREE celebration of free-form, community radio! AshevilleFM's fund drive runs from April 30th through May 6th, with the goal of raising $11,000. All community members can drop by the studios at 864 Haywood Road from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the week for tours of the studios, free coffee from Firestorm Cafe, lunch from local restaurants, and to plunder the $1 record bins!

Thunder Road

Co-hosted by Mtn Xpress

May 11th. 7:00pm

The Mtn Xpress and Fine Arts Theatre Present the 1958 classic Thunder Road which was filmed in and around Asheville.

Joining us will be special guest speaker Michael Gouge, lecturer of mass communication at UNC-Asheville, Mr. Gouge previously taught a first-year colloquium called “Film, the Automobile and American Culture” in which Thunder Road was required viewing.

Robert Mitchum stars as a Korean war hero who returns to his hometown in Tennessee and takes over his family's bootleg moonshine business where he has to battle both the mob and federal agents. Not only did Mitchum star in the film, he wrote the story and the film's theme song; Robert's son Jim plays his younger brother in the film. Thunder Road is widely considered the best movie about moonshine bootleggers, and its climatic car chase is one of the finest ever captured on film.
