The Movie That Made Me: A 1939 Classic And A '79 Rockumentary

A few summers ago, Morning Shift launched a series called “The Movie That Made Me”. A guest would come on and talk about the film that had the biggest impact on their life.

Author Luvvie Ajayi talked about how she was influenced by the film “The Color Purple.” “Snap Judgement” host Glynn Washington talked about how “The WIZ” showed him an image of himself that he hadn’t seen before.

Now Morning Shift is bringing “The Movie That Made Me” back as an occasional segment throughout this summer.

We start things off with frequent contributor to the Morning Shift, Jon Davis, chief meteorologist at RiskPulse, and he’s got not one, but two movies that he says had a big impact on his life.
