The Pre-1997 (old Walden 1120) music library needs a new home

4/25/17  First, I want to humbly thank Carol and Jack of Marlboro for housing the old Walden 1120 music library rent free for the past 20 years. When I look back at all the financial turmoil that has occurred over that time, I don't know what I would have done without this ongoing storage "gift." With that said, I am currently in the process of finding a new home for the library, either temporary or permanent. I also need to reclaim the shrinking living space in my own home for the ever growing post-1997 library.

Troubadour 1710 main format extended by an hour

4/25/17  I have decided to extend the regular Troubadour 1710 format from a 10 PM ending to an 11 PM ending seven nights per week. Sleep Enhancement will now air from 11 PM to 6 AM each day.

April marks the 20th anniversary of the end of folk music on Walden 1120 Radio

4/25/17 It was this month 20 years ago that I presented the last hour of folk programming on Walden 1120 AM in Concord, MA. Years of gross mismanagement and dishonesty resulted in an erosion of trust from the local business community and brought about the station's inevitable demise. Today, as WBNW, it has no local identity with the communities near its transmitter site, and the money to operate it comes from a rich investment broker, not local advertisers or listeners. Nevertheless, at this late date, there is still some hope in getting the format on a licensed station in the north central Massachusetts region. There are a couple of possibilities I will be investigating over the coming weeks and if anything develops, I'll reveal what I can here.
