More Music and Writing - And I Get PAID For It Now!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything to The Void page, BUT that’s because I’ve been posting plenty to CBS Radio Boston’s websites!
That’s right, new gig, new radio stations, and lots of writing.
I may re-share some of my posts on this page, but if you want to follow everything, do so here:

1 Year Later: Remembering the Boston Phoenix and WFNX
The whole music community is at SXSW again, St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and all I can think about surrounding these events is the anniversary of the closing of the Boston Phoenix. This time last year, my coworkers at WFNX.com were off to Austin, leaving me behind to man the motherboard in Boston. I was uploading interviews into our broadcast system and scheduling music from all the Boston bands who were playing SXSW when a “town meeting” was called for all Phoenix employees, and owner Stephen Mindich announced that the last magazine had been published. Don’t come in tomorrow, come back and pack all your things on Monday. One year ago, it all came crashing down.
