Boy Howdy, The Story of Creem Magazine” Documentary Kicks Off The Freep Film Festival

Ann Delisi talks with music journalist and one-time editor-in-chief at Creem Magazine, Susan Whitall, and the documentary’s producer JJ Kramer who is the son of Creem founder, Barry Kramer, and was 4 years old when his father passed away. This documentary was a way for him to connect with the father he barely knew. Susan Whitall gives us a peek into what it was like to work at Creem, what made this Detroit magazine different than Rolling Stone and other competitors, and what it was like to be a woman working in that truly wild and crazy place.
