That's where I read of the shutdown, on Scott Fybush's North East Radio Watch (free to read
part of it, subscription to read all of it) Link is above but I have no more info about the shutdown
(which has indeed happened before but they sometimes get back on). Don't know if equipment was
taken away, etc. I guess they got a fine when they were on 97.5 but still haven't paid it.
Oops I just found some info. The date on it is March 16 and the info in it comes from an emailhttp://jamaicangroupiemet.com/2012/03/stress-in-boston.html
>>It is said that when the FCC pulled into the studio yesterday, they were greeted by interns and Paul ‘Genius’Perreria who was said to have outwitted the FCC and left the station hastily and left interns and other staff members to face the heat alone. Also said is that the FCC is looking to make arrests as the station copied mechanisms and mannerisms of the famous radio station Hot97 New York and pretended to operate legitimately.
(There also is a repro of a tweet from Hot 97 saying they were having "problems with the stream")
Maybe they still broadcast online...I'll have to check to see if they're indeed off air (even north
of Boston I could often pick them up)
Many of the comments to the linked article above are written in a dance-hall Jamaican slang.
(Remember pass the dutchie 'pon the left han' side by Musical Youth? Orig. song referred to
drug paraphrenalia while "dutchie", a cooking pot, was substituted)
