The Book Shop on Broadway thats located in Ball Square in Somerville hosted “The Carter Alan Event” the other night at the shop.

Carter Alan, an amazing gentleman gave a very informative talk about his book “Radio Free Boston: The Rise and Fall of WBCN.

He shared his memories about his 19 years at WBCN as well as great stories about legendary rockers like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Peter Frampton, U2 and even Bob Marley’s early years playing around Boston and many others local venues.

Below is a link to a story about Carter and the book that one of our Somerville neighbors, Ethan Gilsdorf wrote for the Boston Globe.
