Friday, July 31, 4pm: “RADIO TALKS: The early days of underground radio”

Watch the recording of this panel discussion:


Music entertains, but it can never be reduced to mere entertainment. Music is always a change agent in human life.

And so it was in the early 1970s, when underground, freeform, and countercultural radio stations took to the airwaves, amidst profound social, political, and cultural changes taking place around the country.

How did this play out? And what does it mean today? This panel explores a landmark era at WBCN in Boston and WTJU in Charlottesville.

Presented in conjunction with WTJU’s virtual screening of WBCN and the American Revolution through August 16.
