WORST TO FIRST: THE TRUE STORY OF Z100 NEW YORK Interview with Filmmaker Mitchell Stuart

Inspirational, wacky and wild all sum up the incredible story of how Z100 New York went from the worst radio station to first in 1983 and they did in 74 freaking days.  Filmmaker Mitchell Stuart talked with me about the crazy rise of the station, the wild antics of Scott Shannon, and collard greens!!

In 1983, Z100 launched from the swamps of New Jersey, where no artist would venture, and the DJs had to buy their own records just to have music to play on air. Fun, poignant and aspirational, the film features Scott Shannon and several other Hall of Fame radio personalities as well as industry legends like Clive Davis and Elvis Duran. 

As an ol’ radio fella this film hit home!  Please enjoy my lovely chat with Mitchell Stuart.  We talk Z100 New York’s legacy, Scott Shannon’s amazing impact on Radio, Mitchell’s documentary work and so much more.
