Parlour Bells is very honored and excited to announce that we have been invited to perform in a historic sendoff for the 29 year old broadcasting maverick WFNX, which we were crushed to learn will go off the air this summer. On June 30, 2012 We Want The Airwaves: A WFNX Celebration will take place at Paradise Rock Club in Boston. The evening will feature legendary Boston acts, popularized thanks to WFNX’s cutting edge format, O Positive and Orbit, along with Parlour Bells and Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble finalist Garvy J. Beloved voices from the station’s past and present will be in attendance, and FNX fans will be treated to DJ sets by Paul Driscoll, Adam 12, Bruce McDonald, Duane Bruce and Mike “X-Night” Gioscia. Your favorite radio hosts Julie Kramer and Henry Santoro, names you perhaps grew up with, will of course also be taking part in the festivities, and the public will get its first peek at the upcoming WFNX documentary, We Want The Airwaves. Early doors for this 18+ show are at 7PM, and tickets are now onsale through Ticketmaster. Helping to organize the event is radio host and Boston music supporter Anngelle Wood, who got her start at WFNX and remained there for nearly seven years. True to the station’s values and commitment to the public, the show will benefit The Progeria Research Foundation.
Having benefitted greatly from the station’s attention to Boston artists, and sharing their progressive values, Parlour Bells was disheartened to hear that WFNX would be going off the air. We believe this is an evening that WFNX listeners past and present, will not want to miss, and we are looking forward to helping make this an evening that everyone can be proud of.
