This Friday, June 21, Ryan & Frank, host of WUSB's Hot Wax radio show, release their new movie, Berger & Frank's BBQ on VHS tape and streaming online!

In the heart of Long Island, a beloved radio station, WUSB 90.1FM, faces a grave threat from a ruthless T.C.P. conglomerate led by The Corporate Pigs and the infamous Stinky Pete. As the community's spirit is at stake, two unlikely heroes - Berger, a skateboarding hamburger and Frank, a clumsy hot dog - set out to save the station and preserve the soul of Long Island's radio. With their friends from the underground music scene, they uncover the truth behind the takeover and plan the most epic fundraising concert ever, "The BBQ." Join Berger and Frank on their wild adventure as they navigate the challenges and fight for the airwaves, proving that even the most unassuming heroes can make a difference.

Filmmaker Maren Poitras is FINDING THE MONEY on Tom Needham's THE SOUNDS OF FILM

Get ready to embark on a thought-provoking journey with "FINDING THE MONEY," where American economist Stephanie Kelton explores the controversial world of Modern Money Theory (MMT). Kelton challenges the conventional wisdom surrounding the National Debt Clock, arguing that the ever-increasing numbers we see are not a burden on taxpayers or future generations. Instead, she posits that this "debt" represents the total amount of dollars created by the US federal government that now serve as assets in our hands.


This program airs Thursday, June 20 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Dr. Stephen Loyd on Play It Forward

From the team at Play It Forward:

Tune in Friday, 6/14, at 1 PM to WUSB.FM, 90.1 & 107.3 FM to a special episode of Play It Forward. We had the honor to interview Dr. Stephen Loyd, the doctor who inspired Michael Keaton’s ‘Dopesick’ character.

Dr. Loyd is the Chief Medical Officer at Cedar Recovery in Nashville, TN. Recognized as an Advocate for Action by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Dr. Loyd’s dedication to educating others on addiction and treatment is evident through over five hundred lectures on opioid use disorder and proper prescribing of controlled substances.
Dr. Loyd has been in recovery from opioid and benzodiazepine addiction since July 8, 2004. Dr. Loyd shares his personal story and connects his successful recovery to the social determinants of health. The experience galvanized him to move into addiction treatment and policy work. Dr. Loyd is now the medical director of a large addiction treatment facility in Nashville and works at an inner-city rehabilitation facility serving indigent women.
Since his recovery, Dr. Loyd has dedicated his energy toward not only addiction treatment but also influencing public health policies.

We discuss important information and resources regarding the fentanyl/opioid crisis, recovery and prevention! Thank you for listening!
