Such fun. The last time

By on

Such fun. The last time people actually dress up and danced and had fun while they did it when they went to nightclubs! Bunch of deadbeats at overly priced bar and clubs now.

Real Classy

By on

Got drunk and played loud music next to your window when you had a 6am shift, screamed obscenities at you when you asked them to pipe down. Then smacked their gf's in the face after the clubs let out like it was required etiquette.

Classy people, all dressed up, barfing on themselves and getting violent.

thanks, Gary

The good old days of waking to the Big Mattress in the morning.

The one that sticks in my mind is the song "it's beginning to look a lot like Nixon." during the Iran Contra scandal.

The old WBCN

By on

I remember when Nixon won by a landslide in 1972,the late Danny Schechter the News Dissector announced "the Nixon mudslide has begun". That wasn't the kind of news they were doing on WBZ. That was the great era of 'BCN, musically and newswise. It went severely downhill in it's later years, starting in the 80s.

Danny Schechter

Always closed his news broadcast with "That's the news. If you don't like it, go out and make your own".

The good old days.

If anyone remembers Jerry Williams....

....go find a recording of Billy impersonating him. Hilarious-right up there with his impression of Larry Fine.

Nice, but its no "Somerville oh Somerville"

By on

Sung to the tune of Christmas Tree oh Christmas Tree. An homage to the Townies from before they were priced out. (Yes, I know you still have a few knuckleheads nearby.)
