The American Revolution, the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics and rock & roll changed everything is coming -- but not without your help!
Click here to watch Norm Winer, WBCN's Program Director and News Director, discuss the station's news coverage from interview for The American Revolution.
The American Revolution is the new documentary film that tells the incredible, untold story of the early days of the radical, underground radio station WBCN, and how it changed radio -- and the world. The film is being completed for the 50th anniversary of WBCN in March 2018.
The American Revolution tells a story that couldn't be more relevant or timely today -- both to those who lived through the era, as well as to a new generation of young people, who may be more familiar with Occupy than SDS, and who are seeking to use media to create positive political and social change in their world.
The film shows how, in the days before Twitter, cell phones and GPS, radio, politics and rock and roll helped drive an unpopular president from office, end a war, and fueled the other great social, political and cultural changes of the era.
And with recent events, The American Revolution's story is all the more critical, including its look at the importance of a free press and free speech and expression.
At a time when it's never been easier to communicate, but never been more difficult to be heard, it's a timely and critical story to be told.
We did it before.
And we can do it again.
But not without your help!
"Back in the day, no matter what you were doing, somewhere in the back of your mind you were thinking, 'We've got to get rid of Nixon!'"
Congratulations to "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week" documentary for Grammy win.
Congratulations to Swampscott, Mass' Erik Taros and team on the much-deserved Grammy for "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week." The documentary film project took 14 years to complete, and involved an archival search from fans of the Beatles, including home movies and stills taken of the band in its early days.
See "Eight Days a Week" if you haven't. It's a new and stunning look at the early days of the Beatles. And special thanks to Erik Taros for his support of "The American Revolution" as a donor and by sharing his archives for the film.
