TOUCH 106.1 FM was founded in 2005 by Charles Clemons, John Laing and Leroy McLaren. The Black community’s voice was silenced by the sale of long-standing heritage radio station, WILD. The trio set out to bring about change, and offer the people a platform to voice their concerns, grievances and issues. The barrage of offensive music and programming in today’s urban radio industry put the Black community at a disadvantage with lyrics positioned to degrade the culture and set our people back hundreds of years.
TOUCH 106.1 is a community-based radio station catering to the broadcast needs of the neighborhoods in our immediate broadcast rang. The founders of TOUCH had a vision for the future of our community and the broadcast industry, and through broadcasting, we will continue to focus on the need for family-oriented, responsible, profanity-free radio programming.
Our Music Director, Lorenzo “LC” Caldwell is a music industry veteran,originally from Lawrence,has over 25 years worth of experience in the music & radio industry working in markets such as Atlanta,Greensboro,Miami,Richmond and he brings his experience back home to Boston to program what is sure to be Boston’s Top Urban Adult Contemporary Radio Station.
Our Asst Music Director,Courtney Boston is experienced in broadcasting, with a bachelors degree in communications/broadcasting from Florida A&M University. Courtney maintains the flow of the station’s music format and playlist, and she hosts the midday show weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
