Award For Jim’s ‘Jim Morrison’ Documentary!

We wanted to let Simple Minds fans know that, at the New York Festivals International Radio Awards last night in NYC, ‘Jim Kerr on Jim Morrison’ was awarded the Gold Medal for Best Documentary in the Culture & The Arts category.

The documentary, written and presented by Jim Kerr and produced by Lonesome Pine Productions, explores the enduring legacy of Jim Morrison, who has inspired Jim since his childhood. Throughout the programme, Jim reflects on how the iconic poet and singer has influenced both his life and career.

The New York Festivals International Radio Awards is an annual and very prestigious ceremony held in New York that celebrates the world’s best radio production. The awards are judged by an international panel of writers, presenters, producers, editors, sound artists, journalists and directors. (The radio industry refers to these awards as their audio broadcast equivalent of the Grammy’s!)
