Join WBOI for Issues & Ales on March 26th!

Mar 10, 2015

Join WBOI's Sean Bueter and Virginia Alvino for Issues & Ales on Thursday, March 26th!  It's a fun, laid-back event that features panels of experts and community leaders discussing important issues in our region.

The first hour will focus on Downtown Development and Downtown Living. We'll look at the critical mass of residential and commercial development projects, discuss the challenges, benefits and future of living downtown, and look at how these projects originated.

As 89.1 WBOI continues to grow and expand our news and programs, we must also continue to grow financial support from our listeners.

WBOI's Sustaining Members represent a reliable, steady, and incredible source of funding for the community news coverage and NPR programs you can hear every day on WBOI.

Tom Magliozzi who, along with his brother Ray, hosted NPR’s hit comedy show Car Talk for the last 37 years, died Monday morning, November 3, 2014, from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. “Turns out he wasn’t kidding,” said Ray. “He really couldn’t remember last week’s puzzler.”
