Radio Unnameable- Bob Fass and the Rise of Free Expression on the Airwaves

Revolutionary New York disc jockey Bob Fass is the subject of a new documentary - Radio Unnameable. Filmmakers Paul Lovelace & Jessica Wolfson and Bob Fass himself talk about it on this edition of  Tell Somebody.

From the film's website: Legendary radio personality Bob Fass revolutionized late night FM radio by serving as a cultural hub for music, politics and audience participation for nearly 50 years. Long before today’s innovations in social media, Fass utilized the airwaves for mobilization encouraging luminaries and ordinary listeners to talk openly and take the program in surprising directions. Radio Unnameable is a visual and aural collage that pulls from Bob Fass’s immense archive of audio from his program, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now.
