Even though I didn't live on the east coast, I did grow up around the events that were featured by Bob Fass and his radio program. I loved this doc, I found it so interesting and I'm glad that Mr. Fass is able to get attention given to the massive cultural impact he has had. I highly recommend this very interesting documentary!

This documentary is testimony to what one man can bring about in the media. Bob Fass began bringing the world he experienced as an actor in Greenwich Village to people still up at what is still called by some "ungodly hours." He gave exposure to musical and spoken word artists such as Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie and Jerry Jeff Walker. Fass was the first to treat callers to the program as part of a community and not just as a way of making the host sound good. "Radio Unnameable" was a conduit towards activism that found housing for fire victims and cleaning up parts of Manhattan after a calamitous winter garbage collectors' strike. I was touched by the Verizon overnight worker who said she felt connected and a companion to Fass in one ear while she was at work. No matter what your opinion is of the politics espoused among the people who gathered and/or were drawn together by Bob Fass "Radio Unnameable" illustrates quite clearly how one personality's approach made and still makes an impact on the listener's world.

A good documentary about a New York radio show host who had many great people from the 60s and 70s on his program--also includes rare footage of the 1967 "raising of the Pentagon" Yippie protest.
