Radio Unnameable, the new documentary by Paul Lovelace and Jessica Wolfson, explores the career of Bob Fass, the legendary DJ who pioneered late-night radio in the 1960s. Fass, whose radio show still airs every week, participated in and helped organize some of the most famous moments in 1960s counterculture, including the demonstrations at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The film, which combines never-before-seen amateur footage, original interviews, and choice selections from Fass’s archives, finally tells a story that desperately needed to be told.
“Radio Unnameable” airs on WBAI from Midnight to 3am on Thursday nights/Friday mornings. You can stream the show through WBAI’s website, or New Yorkers can tune their dial to 99.5 FM. The film is currently being screened throughout the country.
