The Last Voyage of the Cap’n Bill





Winner 1978 | WOCB Radio

Radio drama and documentaries are far from dead, if this year’s Peabody entries are a valid indication. Indeed, both are on the upswing, not only in the larger cities, but in the smaller communities. WOCB taped more than 10 hours of conversations with fishermen who manned the “Cap’n Bill” and with townspeople who were affected by the fishing vessel’s last voyage. Briskly done, it is a notable achievement for a local station, and well worthy of distinguished recognition by Peabody.
