I Want My MTV: Utah Film Center Screening

I Want My MTV was supported through our Fiscal Sponsorship program and Artist Foundry.

Post-film Q&A with director Tyler Measom moderated by KUER RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

A touchstone in the lives of millions of young people, as well as a home for musicians and filmmakers to display their frequently offbeat sense of artistic vision, upstart music network MTV burst onto televisions on August 1, 1981. Via a combination of the scrappy handful of young adults serving as hosts, the fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants production style, and the music mini-movies that were the foundation of the original channel, MTV was like nothing Americans had ever seen before.

A nostalgic and thrilling ride, I Want My MTV takes its audience back to the beginning, when the idea of a television channel devoted solely to screening newfangled videos from music’s hottest stars seemed destined for failure. From DEVO and Cyndi Lauper to David Bowie and Madonna, the film provides a peek into how the videos that defined a generation, as well as how the team of young executives—now some of the most prolific and powerful leaders in American media—tasked with growing this seed of an idea, would quickly flourish into a beloved but often controversial cultural juggernaut. Features commentary from StingTegan and SaraFab 5 FreddyJerry CantrellTabitha Soren, and more.

Jim James and The Claypool Lennon Delirium

 KRCL is proud to present Jim James and The Claypool Lennon Delirium at the Eccles Theater on Friday, June 21. 

Jim James: Whether it’s collaborating with his band mates, recording guest vocals, or hand-picking opening acts, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James has always radiated a spirit of camaraderie with his fellow musician.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium: Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. After a successful summer tour, pairing Primus with Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, the two bandleaders, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon, have decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts thus far have spawned the upcoming, full-length release called “Monolith of Phobos.”

Uni will be opening for Jim James + The Claypool Lennon Delirium at 7:30pm.
