Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Wolf and the J Geils Band. They were all on heavy rotation at WBCN, an FM radio station born in the ‘60s that almost single-handedly created the counterculture in Boston, melding music and politics into a new lifestyle that transformed the city. In this electrifying documentary, watch Patti Smith on WBCN chanting every dirty word she could think of in defiance of FCC rules.

Directed by Bill Lichtenstein; 2019; Documentary; USA. Runtime: 120 min.
