Party like it’s 1969!  

The feature documentary “WBCN and The American Revolution” is done and it’s selling out film festivals across the country to great reviews.  It’s the story of how a radio station, politics, and rock and roll changed everything.  Critics are saying it’s perhaps the first film to tell the true story of the 1960s, and how WBCN helped give birth to indie media.  

Next, following festivals, will be showings at theatres and schools starting this fall, a planned national TV broadcast in 2020, and the film available on home video.

Distributing the film beyond festivals and public TV requires additional music rights for the iconic songs in the production.  The music artists who wrote the legendary tunes want to be shown the money, and you can’t make a documentary about WBCN without music!

The film’s final fundraising campaign to raise the funds needed for the additional music rights is at the half way point, with half of the needed money raised.  Visit:
