Great 'spin' on a great era (but avoid the PBS airings unless you like the incessant 10-min. beg-athon breaks)

10/10

This is a great doc on the mid-'50s through '70s/'80s era, with a big emphasis on it being the stimulus for rock n' roll, based on the black-based R&B radio stations.

It's great to see/hear Cousin Brucie, Dan Ingram, and other deejays I grew up with while living in New Jersey and in the D.C. market. It's broader than just showcasing the Northeast scene, e.g. Wolfman Jack when he aired from a Mexican-based station with an INCREDIBLE (25,000 watts?) signal!

See if it is for rent by Netflix, other online rental sites or your local video store. I'd recommend it rather than seeing it on your local PBS station (sorry, but I'm a decent donor and tire of the fund-raising breaks).

Was the above review useful to you?
