1969 Orgy: A Radio Documentary

This semester, WHRB produced a radio documentary about the year 1969 jointly produced by the seven on-air departments of WHRB. In this first station-wide Orgy in WHRB's recent memory, we reviewed 1969's Apollo 11 landing, Woodstock Music Festival, Harvard Strike, Nixon’s inauguration, Vietnam Moratorium, and other pivotal history-defining moments through hundreds of popular songs, speeches, and recorded broadcasts, including materials from Harvard’s own archives. If you missed the Orgy, we're sharing our 12 produced montages here!
