Left of the Dial

Documentary Art and Activism

Left of the Dial takes its name from the Replacements song of the same name, and is a reference to the position of the radio dial on which non-commercial radio stations are typically located. In the era of college radio these stations were reliable sources of independent, unsigned, and otherwise “underground” artists.  

Left of the Dial is a blog, resour and film program molded in that tradition, with a strong focus on documentary films but with a flexibility to allow a variety of mediums, genres, themes and ideas to be explored.
