The documentary film RADIO UNNAMEABLE tell the story of legendary radio personality Bob Fass who 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 and take the program in surprising directions. On the air for 50 years, Bob Fass continues to be the voice of the unrepresented population of New York and was actively involved in many pivotal events over the decades from Tompkins Square Riots to Zuccotti Park. RADIO UNNAMEABLE is a visual and aural collage that pulls from Bob Fass’s immense archive of audio from his program, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now.

Mr. Fass narrates old war (and antiwar) stories with vivid clarity and impeccable timing… It can make you wish – or, if you’re lucky, remember – that you were a sleepless New Yorker in 1967, kept from loneliness by a gentle, soulful voice on the radio.

- A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Rarely has any film, fictional or documentary captured the hypnotic effect of voices on the airwaves like this chronicle of Bob Fass… a treasure trove of both visual and aural footage makes this terrific doc a keeper. It’s affectionate appreciation of one man’s long strange trip through history make it a helluva lot of fun – ★★★★★
