The incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics, and  rock and roll changed everything.

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."

"I watched the movie with awe," Ty Burr, Boston Sunday Globe.

"Timely as all hell," Jared Rasic, Source Weekly, Bend, OR.

Directed by Peabody Award-winner Bill Lichtenstein who began working at WBCN at age 14 in 1970.

Q & A to follow with Director Bill Lichtenstein, WFMU Station Manager Ken Freedman and WFMU DJ Evan "Funk" Davies.
