"Common Man" Dan Cole documentary is on Kickstarter [TRAILER]
The Common Man proudly holds his CIty Pages 2013 FM Personality of the Year award in the Clear Channel office.
A documentary project promising a behind-the-scenes look at Minnesota's most esoteric radio personality is in the process of raising funds on Kickstarter.
As of yesterday, Common Man: The Ego Has Landed had raised just over $2,000 toward filmmakers Gregg Holtgrewe and Matthew Deery's goal of $15,000. The duo have until July 13 to get there.
"We want to get behind The Common Man and find out what he's all about... to see a different side of this 'Radio Romeo,'" Holtgrewe and Deery write on their Kickstarter page. "We will follow his journey from the tough-guy towns of Detroit and Coon Rapids to his days in Wyoming and back again."
Donors who pledge $250 or more get to play a round of golf with the Common Man, among other perks.
And if you're feeling really generous:
*Cue the "I always love that one" sounder*
Without further ado, here's the trailer, which features "a couple thirteen fourteen" of the Best Of the Twin Cities awards we've bestowed upon the Common Man over the years:
