R DUB!, host and producer of the nationally syndicated radio show, SUNDAY NITE SLOW JAMS, has produced and directed a feature length documentary on the birth of Hip Hop radio in TUCSON that has been chosen as an official film selection at three upcoming U.S. film festivals: The 2013 SAN DIEGO BLACK FILM FESTIVAL; THE BLOODY HERO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in PHOENIX; and THE OTHER VENICE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in VENICE, CA.
AM MAYHEM: THE STORY OF TUCSON’S POWER 1490, captures the passion of a group of friends whose love and vision for radio gave birth to TUCSON's first Hip Hop station. The film features many of the people who helped pave the way for rap music on the radio in its early days, including BRUCE ST. JAMES, TED STRYKER, TIM RICHARDS, BOOGIE D, MOJO, AND R DUB!.
In a press release, SLOW JAMS' Host and President of FUSION RADIO NETWORKS, R DUB!, said, This film tells the untold story of POWER 1490 in TUCSON, where I started working in the early '90's at the age of 16. It was a magic time for radio, and the rebels and visionaries who made POWER 1490 an early force for Hip Hop tell all in this documentary, which was a true labor of love for me. I'm incredibly proud that it has been chosen as an official selection of these three cutting edge film festivals—and I hope that everyone in radio has a chance to see the film."
