Legendary New York disc jockey Bob Fass revolutionized late night FM radio by serving as a cultural hub for music, politics and audience participation for nearly 50 years. Long before today’s innovations in social media, 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 Bob Fass’s immense archive of audio, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now.
With archival audio and visual appearances by: Bob Dylan, Shirley Clarke, Jose Feliciano Kinky Friedman, Allen Ginsberg, Abbie Hoffman, Herbert Hunke, The Incredible String Band, Carly Simon, Dave Van Ronk, Holly Woodlawn, Karen Dalton.
