    Your time and energy would have been better spent getting a license and broadcasting by the rules.
    I’ll listen on the Internet now

      What I want to know is in this day and age is…why bother broadcasting terrestrial in the first place? In this age of everyone and their mother having the internet in their pocket, car manufacturers with in-dash internet radio, aux-in ports, and USB ports, the availability more and more of devices to play your pocket device in your car, it just seems… Quaint.

      It’s good that you’re still streaming over the internet but…you didn’t need to go terrestrial in the first place.

    It seems like many are missing the point. License, fines, etc. aside. The fact is there are OTHER unlicensed stations operating at this very moment. The fact is yet another radio station that serves the Black community has been silenced. I caution everyone that, in the end, there is allot more to this than meets the eye. And at the end of the day we’ll find out that there were “darker forces” at work here. And I will not be surprised if/when it’s revealed that some within that force…look like us.

    The “Point” is as much as things “Change”, they stay the same! Touch FM 106.1 (low powered? Hardly) is one of the most enlightening, empowering, invigorating, passionate platforms in the city of Boston. The people of the community are allowed to have a voice irrespective of social or economical status. That is why the spotlight has been shone on this Powerful Force!

    This station has and will not be silenced!! In this day and age of free speech it is ironic that anyone could be silenced much less a conduit for all people, but most importantly, the disadvantaged. What does that say?? Never let your Voice be Muted and Never let the Fabric of The Community Fade. Touch FM 106.1 is not gone nor forgotten.

    The impediments,making folk jump backwards is just the reason TOUCH probably disregarded FCC status,nonetheless they presented themselves as professionals and a responsible on-air entity that presented the community with an inordinate amount of public service broadcasting that has yet to be matched….I’ll miss you TOUCH,and anticipate the day when you return!

  9. Dust 106.3 says:

    8 years unlicensed that’s much,like mine they come after 4 month of on air(and very small radio station)and warn me about it’s illegal,the DTZ(like the FCC)inspect the radio station and guess what they don’t even go with nothing,due I was complying with FCC part 15 compliant rule,that the station was emitting only 0.25mW at 3 meters(FCC part 15 compliance)and they inspect it every year if it cause interference,so I got an”special”license to operate it and cost was less than 4 us dollars,so you see,i stay out of trouble and so you have to do it(hence I cover about 1.5 miles radius enough for me and listeners).Almost forgot I’m from Aruba.

    Peace. Good luck to you Brother Charles. I wholeheartedly support your efforts to regain the voice of the community. Remember that no good deed goes unpunished nor without enemies. In fact, the better the deed, the more the enemies. Peace
