Reel Reviews – Mayor of the Sunset Strip

Reel Review #12: This is a documentary that came out in 2003 about Rodney Bingenheimer who is better know as Rodney on the ROQ. Rodney is a Los Angeles radio DJ on KROQ, best know for breaking some of the biggest bands first – often before they even had a record deal. His ability to spot music is amazing. More amazing is the interesting life he has carved out for himself among the celebrity culture of Los Angeles. He is a Zelig like figure, whom celebrities have embraced. This film is a fascinating look at a man who was at the center of it all and never tried to cash in, he did it all for the love of the music.
