Classic Rock Doc for Real Music Fans Gets Trailer with Runaway Radio

The film industry has changed almost in tandem with the music industry. Old method of distribution were disrupted by consumer technology and eventually post-digital streaming platforms, be it Spotify or Netflix. Radio, like cable television, has suffered as a result, especially the already rare rock radio stations that had developed big personalities, large audiences, and special real estate in the music industry. Houston’s 101 KLOL was one such station, and it serves as a microcosm for the changes in radio, music, and rock over the years in the new documentary film, Runaway Radio: The Rise and Fall of 101 KLOL FM. You can watch the trailer above.
