Free Sports Radio
Bob and Dickey, two Filipino-American brothers, launch a
commercial-free, sports-talk radio station in a small western
New York market with no major professional sports teams.
However, their younger sister Frances, a retail banker with
dreams of running her own hedge fund, conspires to turn the
station, WFSR, into a highly profitable commercial enterprise.
As in life, the world of sport in the play doesn't always
provide an escape. A college hockey coach suddenly disappears
after allegations he sexually assaulted a teen boy. A WFSR host
spirals into gambling addiction, while another is stalked by an
obsessed caller. The WFSR crew grapples with some of the
disturbing transgressions plaguing sports today while fighting
for the station’s survival.
