I began my professional radio career at WFNX, first as an intern in 1997 and as a DJ in 1998. I stayed for nearly 7 years . During that time, I fell in love with so many Boston bands, saw awesome shows, did amazing things and met incredible people. This week’s news has a lot of us all twisted up. This is for all of you who still think music matters.
Hear the show again Monday at 7pm and Thursday at 8pm on WBCN.
