Yesterday at 5pm, Roxbury's new full-power FM radio station cut the ribbon on its broadcast headquarters on Bridge Street in Roxbury.
All sorts of local dignitaries were in attendance, inlcluding State Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (above left), Chairman of the Delaware County Board of Supervisors Jim Eisel (above right), and Roxbury Town Supervisor Thomas S. Hynes (above with the scissors). Even Governor David Paterson was there in spirit, when Peg Ellsworth, the executive director of the MARK Project, read a letter from Hizzoner congratulating the new station on its launch.
The Watershed Post was on-hand to record the proceedings and congratulate the slew of volunteer hosts on whose shoulders the station will be running. (We also sampled the food -- amazing brownies!) Here are a few photos:
