This was the station that I grew up listening to. I'm proud to say I got to work for them. Two hours after being fired by WAAF, WBCN gave me a job!

WBCN Boston: Generic Saturday Night

When I worked for WBCN, I wasn't really doing a show. I was their swing guy. I filled in everywhere, and they didn't have a full time slot for me. So, I'd show up at all times of the day. It was kinda cool because I got to interact with different people all the time. And...my listeners from WAAF wer
