"Radio Unnameable," a feature-length documentary on legendary PACIFICA noncommercial Variety WBAI/NEW YORK late-night radio personality and free speech crusader BOB FASS will air on SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA public TV station KCET (TV)/LOS ANGELES on JUNE 24th, at 9p (ET/PT). The film will also air nationally on LINK TV (DirecTV 375 and DISH 9410).
A trailer can be seen here.
Influential radio personality FASS developed a patchwork of music, politics, comedy and reports from the street, effectively creating free-form radio. For nearly 50 years, he has been heard at midnight on listener-sponsored WBAI-FM. FASS utilized the airwaves for mobilization, encouraging luminaries and ordinary listeners to talk openly, taking the program in surprising directions. "Radio Unnameable" is a visual and aural collage that pulls from FASS' immense archive of audio, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now.
