Legends of rock, folk let love for WBCN shine

WBCN may have been known as the “Rock of Boston,” but it was folk artist Tom Rush who captured the impact of the radio station when he played the traditional “Wasn’t That a Mighty Storm” Monday night at the House of Blues in a multigenre musical love letter to the early days of the renegade broadcast outlet.

The four-hour concert celebrated the initial fund-raising drive for production of “The American Revolution” and raised more money for the documentary about the station due out next year.
