A call for the folk hero of a 1948 protest song to rise up against the misuse of his name, which is being slathered across the very thing he fought against.
Charlie: Boston's Freedom Fighter was produced for the 2006 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story.
The Third Coast collaborated with cartoonist Matt Madden on 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story. The project, inspired by the French literary group Oulipo, asked any/everyone to produce a short audio piece that:
- began with some manifestation of, "To begin with, they never got along;"
- included a pre-recorded voice, rhythmic noise and exclamation
- lasted exactly 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
