The End : WBCN signs off for the final time
The Rock is dead. At least it is at WBCN 104.1FM, the pioneering Boston station that helped invent the album-oriented radio format in the late 1960s and early 1970's and made "The Rock of Boston" its slogan.
A few minutes after midnight this morning, the last notes of the Pink Floyd's "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond" classic and brief audio montage signaled the close of an era.
Ed. Note : Let's hope years from now, when people are thinking back on their memories of Boston, they'll think of WBCN and remember the station as a collective of great people and great music and just a wonderful time. Goodbye, old friend and thank you for a ride!
