I Am What I Play, Toronto director Roger King’s documentary about four DJs from the free-form days of rock radio will receive its Canadian premiere at Canadian Music Week for a Canadian on May 8. Showtime is at the Royal Theatre on Friday, May 8, is 7pm. Ticket details can be found here.
I’ve seen it and it’s very good, even if you’re not a radio nerd. Anyone who remembers names like David Marsden (the guy who hired me at CFNY), Meg Griffin (WNEW/New York), Charles Laquidara (WBCN/Boston) and Pat O’Day (KJR/Seattle) will be pleased to hear them talk about the old days.
Here’s the trailer.
Now here’s a playlist of some of the music you’ll hear in the film.
