Flashback Friday

Flashback FridayThe Boston Phoenix 1966 – 2013 

This may not truly be a flashback in the sense that the shuttering of The Boston Phoenix happened so recently, but I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that The Boston Phoenix is no more; ceasing all publications approximately one month ago after publishing a free weekly paper in the city since 1966.

The Phoenix, as I called it, was a well recognized alternative weekly paper that was popular with college students and regularly reported on the city’s music scene, politics and local happenings.

  1. I remember as a kid being in Boston and people passing copies out on the street. I loved the Phoenix as a student and kept up with it some online after moving away, and having moved back always enjoyed finding a copy to read when in town. it was Boston at its finest to my mind.


  2. It will be missed – the reporting was always thorough and interesting on topics the two daily majors were too afraid to tackle.
