Radio Unnameable screening Comments

The School of Communication and Department of Radio, Television and Film, in collaboration with the Center for Civic Engagement presents a free screening of Radio Unnameable as part of the Documentary Perspectives: Moving Pictures and Moving People series made possible by a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Legendary radio personality Bob Fass revolutionized the FM airwaves in the 1960s and ‘70s with his free-form program Radio Unnameable, a cultural hub for music, politics and audience engagement. For nearly 50 years, he has been heard at midnight on New York City listener-sponsored station WBAI, utilizing the airwaves for mobilization long before today’s innovations in social media. Drawing from Fass’ extraordinary personal archive of audio recordings--including interviews with Allen Ginsberg and Abbie Hoffman, and performances by Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie and Carly Simon--Radio Unnameable celebrates the profoundly influential career of one of radio’s unsung heroes.


Special Guests: Filmmakers Jessica Wolfson and Paul Lovelace, and WBAI DJ Bob Fass


Refreshments will be served.

All screenings are free and open to the public.
