Storyline

The Glamour & The Squalor is the story of Marco Collins, one of America's last great rock radio DJs and a musical tastemaker that changed our culture. Before the Internet made sourcing new music and rising bands a simple matter of keystrokes and RSS feeds, there was the radio DJ. No one epitomized this role like Marco Collins. He was the on and off switch for an artist's potential career and was the gatekeeper credited for helping break the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, Weezer and countless others. Marco's story is inspiring but universal. He turned his passion for music into a significant lifetime of work and battled some seriously determined demons along the way. And he's still standing.

A quintessential Seattle & roc doc
5 June 2015 | by trap-999-787384See all my reviews

Pacific NW underground rock fans like myself remember Marco Collins almost as much as the famous bands he played each night on his radio show. For those not from the Northwest his name might not be familiar but if you had a radio in the 90's his impact on who you heard being played through it was.

This film brings Marco's life - both the highs and lows - to the audience in a powerful way. The music is great, the interviews range between humorous and heart breaking and the film is shot beautifully. The film never gets too overly dramatic and sensationalized and has you wanting to keep following the story of Marco when the credits start to roll.
