Walter Becker and Donald Fagen wrote this song for the 1978 movie FM
, which takes place at a radio station and was the precursor to the television series WKRP in Cincinnati
. Becker and Fagen performed the song in the movie, which came at a time when FM Radio was relatively new and catching up to AM in popularity. As the song points out, FM has a lot less static than AM, but at the time, a big selling point of FM radio stations was their ability to take chances by playing lesser known bands and album cuts.
