Trailer: Revolutions On Air: The Golden Era of New York Radio 1980 - 1988

NYC radio during the ’80s featured the most dynamic and influential soundtrack the city has ever heard. Revolutions On Air is the story of mix show legends and studio wizards like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red Alert – innovators whose “anything goes” attitude pushed the emerging hip hop, electro, freestyle, and house music scenes and kept radio listeners citywide hooked to their tape decks in order to record these now-classic mixes. On April 22, we’ll be premiering the full documentary. For now, enjoy the trailer below to get a taste of what’s to come.
