Dear Listeners,

We miss you and we miss our venues. In our cultural community, we have many many friends and family who, due to the shutdown, have been out of work, or severely underemployed. We still don’t know when we will be back in the station, but in support and recognition of our local venues, we have been working with 7 venues and 9 music groups to bring you, our loyal listeners, a 10th, sort-of-annual Halloween event. That’s right. A covid safe, 99% virtual -WCSB Lockdown Halloween Maskerade Ball.

The special audio programming begins at 12pm (EST) on 89.3fm and …there will be a virtual costume contest AND a coloring contest for those of you playing at home. Scroll down for the program schedule, or be patient and read all this other stuff first…
