Moved to upstate NY from Boston four years back. Always loved WBCN since the '60s! Awesome sounds... Brings tears to my eyes! The very best in Old Skool magic, Keep-on Keepin' On!
I live between Detroit and Ann Arbor, where we have access to a couple decent stations, but nothing like this. I'm continually astounded at the playlists from WBCN! It's pretty, much all I listen to now.
Would love to connect to Amazon Alexa ! Is it possible ?
The BEST station in the northeast bar none... God! How I miss them in their heyday years!
If you enjoy deep tracks from this period of rock history, 'BCN can't be beat. Live clips, news, everything. Little did I know at the time just how unique BCN was, and how fortunate I was to be in its transmitter range.
