You are invited! A virtual film screening to support WTIP

  You are invited to a special virtual film screening to support WTIP. 

  The award-winning documentary, "WBCN and the American Revolution," about the power of community radio, is available to watch online as part of a campaign to support community radio stations and local arts organizations across the country, in partnership with the National Federation for Community Broadcasters. When you rent the film, half the proceeds come to WTIP to help continue the local coverage you depend on.
 
  A high-energy feature-length film, “WBCN and The American Revolution” follows a cast of characters as their lives connect and intersect during the rise of WBCN, a freeform Boston radio station that became both a player in and a platform for the rock n roll counterculture, antiwar movement, and civil rights, women’s rights, and gay rights movements. The film is set against the political, social, and cultural upheaval in Boston and nationally in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It's "the incredible, true story of how a radio station, politics, and rock and roll changed everything." The dramatic stories in the film are interwoven with the original sights and sounds of the critical events of the era.

  “WBCN and the American Revolution” is available to rent online for $10 for a three-day period, from May 22 through June 4 .
