Radio Fishtown
Reviews | Awards | Video | Purchase

The NY Times (July '95) described Simon Geller, the reclusive and last standing single- handed radio operator in the country, as a gruff mannered crotchety man who often expressed his dislike of Gloucester and its citizens.

The Boston Globe's John Koch called Director Henry Ferrini's Radio FishTown "a piece of poetic silver - a shimmering film impression of the odd Gloucester broadcaster who eventually fled the town that loved and endured his peculiar presence."

Winner of Bravo's Hometown Video Award for Documentary Film by a Media Professional and broadcast on PBS affiliate WGBH, Radio Fishtown was written by Ken Riaf and features corespondent Judd Wilson. The piece is narrated by the late host of morning pro musica Robert J. Lurtsema.

Radio Fishtown whisks the viewer up for a brisk half hour bushwhack from Gloucester, Massachusetts to New York City. Ferrini and his Total Assault TV crew track Geller from the rubble of his studio dungeon and his 56 cents-an-hour job as CEO of WVCA, to his Manhattan penthouse.
