Cyndy Drue grew up outside Philadelphia in Worcester, Pa listening to the "boss jocks" on WFIL. She had a radio show at Centenary College in New Jersey, her first job at WSAN in Allentown, and eventually landed at her dream station, WMMR from 1983-1996. One of her favorite perks of the job is getting to interview the artists. But if only she hadn't turned down Bono's dinner invitation back in 1980....She loves playing all the classic rock on WMGK Saturdays 3pm-7pm. Cyndy writes a blog on wmgk.com as Event Reporter.

A film and a song
Posted 5/30/2014 5:42:00 PM

Scot Sax is a successful songwriter from Philadelphia.  He had a number one song “I Walked,” with his band Wanderlust in the mid-90s, another #1 with “I am the Summertime" from the film soundtrack to American Pie, and in 2006, he co-wrote “Like We Never Loved At All“ that became a hit for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw and won a Grammy.

Now he’s making a documentary called “Platinum Rush; a film by a songwriter.“ To help fund the project, he reached out to friends and fans through Kickstarter to donate money.  I dove right in because I’ve always believed in Scot’s talent.

The way Kickstarter works is, Scot offered incentives to pay back his donors. In my case, I chose the incentive that he write a song about me. I’ve posted it here.

I was the first person to play Scot’s original music on the radio back in the nineties when I had my show “Street Beat” on WMMR, and that’s what he wrote the song about. 

It’s fun to be part of a project like this by donating money to the cause. I’ll always have the song Scot wrote about me, and I wanted to share it with you. (I’m gloating, I know….)

I’ll keep you posted about the film. I can’t wait to see it!

To find out more about Scot, read his bio.

I wrote an article about him late last year called How Music saved Scot Sax
