"I’ve been on the Blues department on the radio for the past four years, which means waking up really early (sometimes 5am on Saturdays) several times a semester to get on air. I almost always dread waking up, but once I get to the station and start playing music, I’m always glad I did it. We get callers from all over the Boston area, and sometimes even the country, thanking us for playing songs they haven’t heard in 20 years. It’s amazing to be able to connect with the Boston community in this way—some callers had seen many of the musicians perform in Harvard Square in the sixties. Hearing their stories and providing this kind of service has been, in addition to totally fun, a very profound way to connect with Boston."
