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.”
