UPDATE: There’s good news on the ‘Boston Country Oldies’ front. In a message to their fans, Stu Fink and Michael Burns have announced an expansion to their brand:

Hello Friends…

We hope this finds you well and we wish all of you the best of the new year.  2015 is off to a great start.  After starting our new venture, Boston Country Oldies, back in July, we have now added 4 new stations to our network…for a total of 5 stations now airing the show.

Effective February 1, 2015, Michael and Stu will be heard on The Legends, WNBP 1450-AM and 106.1-FM in Newburyport, MA, and WWSF 1220-AM and 102.3-FM in Sanford and Biddeford, Maine.  The program will air at 9pm.

We hope these new stations can be heard in your area.  If not, you can get them online at www.wnbp.com or www.sanfordlegends.com.  Both are superb oldies stations, and definitely deserve a listen.

We are also in talks with other stations on the map, and we are hoping some new affiliates will be announced, if not sooner, than later.

Of course, in the Boston area, you can hear Boston Country Oldies on 1330-AM, WRCA, Friday night at 9pm, and again Saturday night at 11pm.  You can get them online at www.1330wrca.com.

Be sure to stop by our website, at www.bostoncountryoldies.com.  You’ll be happy to know our 2015 calendar is there and ready for you to print.

Thanks to many of you for staying close during these last months.  We are glad to now be able to reach out with some really good news.

Talk to you on the air,

Stu Fink and Michael Burns

I also want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who read and commented on my original post, last summer, when I lamented over the cancelation of their show on Country 102.5 WKLB. I knew I wasn’t alone in my distain for that decision, but it was wonderful to hear from so many of you. I’m pleased to able to bring you this positive update!

Michael Burns & Stu Fink bring Boston Country Oldies to 1330-AM WRCA Boston

Fans of Sunday Morning Country Oldies, here’s the good news we’ve been waiting for – Michael Burns and Stu Fink are back on the air! No, not on Country 102.5 WKLB, but 1330-AM WRCA Boston. Here are the details:

Hello friends:

We are pleased to let you know that Michael and Stu will return with their latest show, Boston Country Oldies, which will air Friday night at 9pm and again on Saturday night at 11pm on 1330-AM WRCA in Boston. For those of you out of the Boston area, you can stream the show online at www.1330wrca.com and clicking on “listen live.”  Or you can go to http://1330wrca.com/streamer/.

As there are no other country stations in the Boston area that will play oldies, we had to take what we could find quickly.  This is the best we could do on short notice, since it was our goal to get back on the air in short order.  We think you’ll like our new show, which will feature all of your favorites, as well as the featured artist of the week.  For our first show, that will be Johnny Cash.

We are also looking for other stations around the state that would be interested in picking up the show.  If you know of any in your area, please let us know, and we will investigate.

If you’d like to request a song, go to our website, www.bostoncountryoldies.com, and send in your request via our contact page.  For the moment, that is the best way to reach us.

Also check the webpage often for links to great country songs.  We will also be updating any new stations that we add, so make our website your second home on the net.

Michael and I thank you all for your overwhelming support these last few weeks.  We are pleased to be back, and look forward to getting your feedback as well. So, as always, do stay in touch.

That’s all for now.  We hope you are as excited as we are.

All the best,

Stu Fink (and Michael Burns too!)

Congratulations to 1330-AM WCRA Boston for realizing the vital importance of keeping this music alive on the airwaves for the good of future generations who need to be exposed to the sounds of authentic country music, especially at a time when the legacy looks like it’s about to be lost forever. And kudos to Burns and Fink for finding work so quickly. As a radio guy myself, I know how challenging that is in the current marketplace. Good luck and lets keep this going for another 20 years!
