North East RadioWatch: June 4, 1999

The End of CBL Is Near

by Scott Fybush

Finally this week, one more invitation to our readers to join us on Saturday, June 12, in Providence, Rhode Island, for the NERW Get-Together, spring 1999 edition. We'll be meeting for lunch about noon, then visiting the Rhode Island Historical Society's "Live From Studio 1-A!" exhibit on the history of Rhode Island broadcasting at 2. Those who wish to do so can then follow us down to Westerly on a driving tour of Ocean State tower and studio sites. It's a great chance to meet people who share your interests and make some new friends. Keep an eye on the official Get-Together Web Page for an announcement of our lunch destination, directions, and information on how to RSVP.

Because of the impending trip, there will be no NERW on Friday, June 11. We'll publish a special issue sometime around Wednesday, June 16 in its place. There will also be no NERW Friday, June 18, as we travel to Canada to pay our final respects to CBL; again, a special issue will follow a few days later. E-mail responses may also be delayed a few days while we're on the road. We'll get back on the normal schedule on June 25.
