“Airplay: The Rise and Fall of Rock Radio,” a new documentary by filmmakers Carolyn Travis and Chris Fox Gilson of Travisty Productions, takes viewers on a high energy journey through rock radio’s impact on American society--from spreading black music to white America in the 1950s to fanning the flames of ‘60s rebellion to the uncensored personalities and playlists of satellite radio today. Packed with insider stories from iconic deejays of the past fifty years, “Airplay” persuasively links the pioneers of music radio to the seismic cultural shifts of integration, the struggle to end the Vietnam War, and the corporatizing of America.

“Airplay” chronicles the innocent years of AM radio personalities like Cousin Brucie, Murray the K, Dan Ingram, Jerry Blavat, Casey Kasem, Dick Biondi, Rick Shaw and Wolfman Jack, the payola scandal, Top 40, the rise of progressive FM deejays like San Francisco’s Tom Donahue, the takeover of radio music by corporate giants and the new voice of rock radio through satellite. Rockin’ with fabulous radio songs by the Kinks, Donna Summer and LL Cool J, and spiced with famous music personalities including Fabian, Lesley Gore, Pat Boone, Grace Slick, David Crosby, Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, and Ray Manzarek of the Doors, the film takes viewers deep inside the rock radio phenomenon.

Travisty Productions makes documentaries that dig below the surface of pop culture including “Rock Radio Revolution,” “Rock Jocks: the FM Revolution,” and “Wildwood Days.” Their films, which have appeared on PBS Public Television stations nationwide, have garnered numerous awards and were screened by the Museums of Radio and Television in New York and Los Angeles. Travis is a former news producer, Capitol Hill reporter and was an on-air radio personality herself, for 96X-FM in Miami. Gilson, a former Madison Avenue creative director and global-production executive, also authored best-sellers sold to Disney and New Line studios.

so here's the million dollar question, Chris... how the heck did you manage to clear all the rock songs that I assume pop up all through the documentary? this seems to present a very solid case of utilizing Fair Use, but i just want to know if you did that, and then how you dealt with (or plan to deal with) any future claims by record companies...

This is the Managing Producer with American News Project in Washington D.C. (http://www.americannewsproject.com). ANP is planning to fly me to St. Louis on Thursday to cover the Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

Instead of covering the debate venue itself, we are planning to cover the VP watching party at this following venue.

Chaifetz Arena
St. Louis University
1 South Compton Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63103

We are looking for a stringer to work Thursday with us. We need the stringer to do two things:

1.) Pick up two tickets to the event ASAP at one of six locations. The producer should get one ticket in their name and one in the name of Dave Hutchins.

The pickup locations are here:

2.) Meet with me on Thursday midday to use small HD cams to capture the event and co-produce the piece. We can offer a typical day-rate stringer fee and co-producer credit for the piece on our site. We will supply all equipment.

Interested parties should e-mail davin.hutchins@gmail.com as soon as possible. I will provide details.

Many thanks!
