Radio Free DC is the debut studio album of electronica band Fort Knox Five. It was recorded in the band's hometown of Washington, D.C.[1] The concept of Radio Free DC is that the listener is scanning the radio dial and encountering different sounds from Washington, D.C., including jingles and banter from radio jockeys interspersed throughout the album. [2] The music video for the first single Funk 4 Peace debuted on October 24[3]
