  • Every radio station tried to be this.

    Great doc. If you want to see the genesis of the evolution of pop culture, this is a great addition. Before media became diluted with so many platforms, this was it. These methods are still employed by both radio and content creators across platforms.
  • A Must See For Z100 Fans

    As a native New Yorker and someone who loves music, this documentary about Scott Shannon and the creation of the ultimate hit radio station, Z100, was intriguing. This film brought back wonderful memories of the music of the 1980’s and how much Z100 influenced the music scene. I highly recommend this untold story of a radio station quickly going from “Worst To First” with the help of its fans.
