The amazing, untold story of the radical underground radio station WBCN-FM, set against the dazzling and profound social, political, and cultural changes that took place in Boston and nationally during the late-1960s and early-70s.
Told through the actual sights, sounds, and stories of a compelling cast of characters who connected through the radio station, exploding music and countercultural scenes, militant anti-war activism, civil rights struggles, and the emerging women’s and LGBTQ-liberation movements.
It's "the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics, and rock ‘n’ roll changed everything."
Directed by Peabody Award-winner Bill Lichtenstein who began working at WBCN at age 14 in 1970.
