Join the fun at Burlington Public Library for a Film Screening and Book Signing of WBCN and The American Revolution: How a Radio Station Defined Politics, Counterculture, and Rock and Roll.

Created by Peabody Award-winning journalist and one-time WBCN announcer Bill Lichtenstein, the film and book of the same name reveal the amazing, untold story of WBCN-FM, a radical underground Boston radio station, set against the dazzling and profound social, political, and cultural changes of the late ’60s and early ’70s. 

After the screening, filmmaker and author Lichtenstein will enjoy answering your questions. Copies of the book will be available for sale and for signing by Lichtenstein at the library.

Lichtenstein is the winner of more than 61 major journalism awards, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, The Village Voice, and The Boston Globe. He worked at WBCN from 1971-1977, beginning as a teenage volunteer on the station’s “Listener Line.”
