“To be remembered as a radio personality you need a singular vision, and you can’t be compromised.”
– Meg Griffin

The rock radio DJ once played an unprecedented creative role in the music world. I Am What I Play profiles four DJs in major markets during the heyday of rock radio: their programming, their politics, and their deep connections with musicians and fans. Where are they now — and how did they reinvent themselves as the medium changed?

Roger King. 2015. 105 m. NR. Canada/USA. Seventh Art Releasing (U.S. only).
