An acerbic radio talk show host based in Dallas starts what could be an important few days when he discovers that his controversial late night show is about to be "picked up" by a nationwide network of radio stations. However, all is not perfect for him, because on top of troubles with his love life and fears that the management of the network will try to alter the content of his show he has to cope with a neo-nazi group who have been angered by his forthright opinions.
Interesting footnote: TALK RADIO had its genesis in Portland. Tad Savinar, co-writer, talked about his role recently at the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival. The story goes that Tad Savinar was listening to the radio as he painted when Eric Bogosian visited him, and as they marveled over the vitriol they were hearing. Thus, TALK RADIO was born.
