The Glamour & The Squalor full movie review - Radio never sounded so good
Director Marq Evans was listening to a radio station playing older music and talking to older/former DJ's and found himself memorized by one time Seattle based DJ Marco Collins.
Some several years later, including two kicker starter campaigns, his "The Glamour & Squalor" is now making the festival rounds. Here, Evans introduces and reminds radio music fans that DJ Marco Collins bucked the mainstream radio air waves back in 1900's "playing music other stations couldn't/wouldn't," thus introducing the listening audience to such bands as Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Beck (to name a few), and even todays electronic music. He did this as a closeted gay man, until he was outed by one his bands, then used his popularity to help Washington become one of the first states to allow marriage equality. Unfortunately, he fell victim to the 24/7 lifestyle and his families addiction legacy, which pretty much cost him his career. Through interesting music industry interviews, and words of wisdom from friends and colleagues, Director Evans provides an entertaining look back at the heyday of radio and this intriguing DJ who helped pushed the radio airwaves kicking and screaming into the future.
