Plot

Impoverished roommates Rix Martin and Chuck Hadley have dreams of being the first to operate a coast-to-coast radio broadcast. They invest what little profit their small station makes into advanced equipment and finally get their wish when they bootleg the Jack Dempsey—Jess Willard 1919 heavyweight title fight from ringside.

Meanwhile, the station's band singer is surrounded by suitors—Payne, Oakie, and Chadwick, without whose money the station could not operate.
