SYNOPSIS

Winner of six “Best Documentary” awards, “Airplay” tells the powerful story of how the rock and roll music that made teenagers dance, riot, rebel, and ultimately shake the world came to be heard. There would have been no Elvis or James Brown, no Beatles or Coldplay without the pioneers who gave them airplay.

In its glory years, radio personalities ruled the airwaves. They discovered artists like the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, igniting a cultural revolution that helped end the Vietnam War.

When rock radio lost its soul, a flame went out. “Airplay” is a story of love and war, told by the deejays and the artists they made rock stars. It celebrates a time when we all listened together and the music we danced and fell in love to changed our lives forever.
