Kyle Brightwell has been making music since the age of 4 and performing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 2012. We talked classical, but also plenty of contemporary, as you’ll hear in his musical selections. Give a listen, check out Kyle’s playlist, and be sure to click here for details on BSO’s $20 under 40 deal for the 2015-2016 season. More
I’m probably supposed to write something here like: “when you’re last name is ‘Armstrong,’ and your dad’s in Green Day, rock runs in the family.” But I’m not going to do that. More
You likely remember Temple Of The Dog, Mad Season, Audioslave, and Velvet Revolver. But unless you were up late one Sunday night in 1994, you probably missed this particular supergroup. More
Adam Blye hosts local music podcast Mutiny on the Microphone, so naturally this edition of Six Songs ended up being a primer on what’s happening in the Boston music scene currently. Specifically, Adam spotlighted songs from bands playing the upcoming Boston Scene Party Showcase, which takes place September 12-14. Listen, then check out Adam’s playlist. More

I could regale you with tales from the Summer of 1995. I was 18, fresh out of high school, and drove an ’85 Monte Carlo with a sliding bench seat, which I used to deliver pizzas and to deliver myself and my friends to the beach. Good times. But this isn’t story time. It’s music time. So here’s a whole bunch of tunes from that summer that I recently spun up for a special theme Free-For-All. The Free-For-All airs weekdays from 4-6p, by the way. More
We were recently treated to an acoustic performance from Wolf Alice before their RadioBDC Presents show at the Middle East Downstairs. The band performed 3 songs from their debut full length, “My Love Is Cool”.
All summer long, I’ve been working themes on the Friday edition of the Free-For-All (heard weekdays 4-6p). This past Friday, I decided to make the theme “Covers Uncovered” and I ended up with a pretty neat little playlist when it was all done. I’ve posted all of it that I could find on Spotify below. Enjoy! And be sure to tune in this Friday to hear what’s next. More
