Stations celebrate the 4th
A number of specialty programming themes, at least two countdowns and a grand daddy of all live concerts will liven up the radio dial in Boston for the next three days.
Here are some of the highlights of Fourth of July weekend programming:
WFNX 101.7 - "Text What's Next Weekend" as FNX 101.7 listeners are urged to text their song requests to close out a block of music.
WBMX 104.1 - "Extreme 90's weekend" features nothing but the 90's tunes.
WAAF 107.3 - "All American Band Weekend" will have a block of songs from a selected American-based band at the top of each hour.
WXKS 107.9 - Kiss 108 is featuring "ThrowBack Songs Weekend" from 1999 thru 2009.
WBZ 1030(also heard on 98.5 HD3) - the station's "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular” will get underway at 7pm with host Jordan Rich. WBZ will simulcast the Boston Pops concert with its TV sister-station WBZ-4 starting at 8pm and will also feature fireworks soundtrack at 10:30pm
