About

Titans of Radio is the detailed story behind the giant radio hits created, performed or produced by some of the most influential musicians in the world.

Titans of Radio examines the musicianship and brotherhood of David Foster, Jay Graydon, Ray Parker Jr and Steve Lukather and rips the curtain wide open on how this group of super star musicians went from session players to the worlds most successful producers and stars in their own right. The music they helped shape will remain timeless and now, you get a front row seat to how it all happened. These are the stories you were never meant to hear! 

From award winning director and producer of the hit film, Hired Gun, Fran Strine unveils the never before told stories of these musicians who gave  him unprecedented access to their lives.

Jay Graydon, David Hungate, Jeff Porcaro, Ray Parker Jr., David Foster, Neil Sedaka and his daughter.

What will make Titans of Radio different?

Not only will you hear the stories of how this group of musicians formed and shaped these songs from the ground up, but they will actually re-record and bring in super star guests to join in on the recordings!

Can you imagine some of these songs re-recorded on film with artists like Lady GaGa, Bruno Mars, Adam Levin or a host of other super stars to sing on the track?

The exciting part of all this and why we are here on Kickstarter is, YOU can be a part of this historic production!

By contributing to this Kickstarter program you’ll receive a unique perk! Look to the right and see whats up for grabs! Some really cool items there!

 The funding of this campaign is essential to enable us to: 

finance the filming of important upcoming events with key cast members as well as a number of key interviews around the country that still need to be done, cover the costs of filming of cinematic recreations of events, pay for a composer to score the film, and hire an archival researcher to help find and gather all of the great footage we need.

The listed goal is the minimum we need to start production on this historic production. Additional funding would allow us to continue into post-production and would contribute towards the very costly needs of audio mixing, color-correction, and the final online. Every little bit counts, so we really appreciate whatever you can help us with!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks and challenges we face aren't from this Kickstarter, but from the potential danger of never being able to tell these stories as they should be told and cementing these musicians legacy for you and future generations to see.

With you we can #TellTheirStory
