Metallica's Lars Ulrich Shares His Radio Dreams


(Classic Rock) Lars Ulrich says he is trying to help rock movie Radio Dreams reach a wider audience. The Metallica drummer has backed the independent film financially and even makes an appearance in the movie. After a successful tour of the film festival circuit, Ulrich wants to get the film a wider release.

Directed by Babak Jalali, Radio Dreams tells the story of Afghanistan-based metal band Kabul Dreams, who want nothing more than to meet their heroes in Metallica.

They recruit the help of an Iranian radio station based in Metallica's home city of San Francisco, and one of the radio station's employees is determined to bring the two bands together.

Film fanatic Ulrich was approached by the filmmakers and he says he was instantly drawn to the storyline. He tells the So What podcast: "It sounded really cool and really unique. This was a passion project and this particular group of people and the story was worthy of supporting.

"They shot here in San Francisco about a year-and-a-half ago. They're great people, it's a great story. I love the idea of supporting film and culture from parts of the world that don't get a equal footing on the world stage." Read more here.
