“WBCN and The American Revolution” Virtual Screening to Support WTJU 91.1 FM

Film festival sensation WBCN and The American Revolution is now available in Charlottesville for screening in your own home.

On July 31, we hosted a panel discussion with the filmmaker and two of WTJU’s DJs from the early 1970s. Check out the recording at: RADIO TALKS: The early days of underground radio

The landmark film about the early days of the legendary, underground Boston radio station, will be available to rent online for $10 from July 24 to August 16. Proceeds support WTJU 91.1 FM.

This is part of a nationwide campaign to support and highlight the critical work of community radio and arts groups during the pandemic.

Directed by Peabody Award-winner Bill Lichtenstein, who worked at WBCN-FM starting at age 14 in 1970, and who later was program director of WBRU-FM, the film follows the radical, free-form radio station set against the political, social, and cultural upheaval in Boston and nationally in the late-1960s and early-70s. It’s “the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics, and rock and roll changed everything.”
