Tune into WORT on Sunday, May 3 from noon to 5 pm to help us Boombox The Lockdown! Just because we’re sheltered in place and staying apart right now doesn’t mean we can’t Celebrate! Decorate! Elevate! and Resonate Together!!
BBTL is the 3rd event of its kind hosted by WORT. But unlike Boombox the Wasteland, this will be a “socially distant” party with family, friends and neighbors where we all connect, blow off steam and have some fun…safely. You can participate from your own front porch, yard, or driveway, even your bike or car. Please invite people to the online event and spread the word in your own neighborhood pages and groups.
How will YOU Boombox The Lockdown? How will your BLOCK Boombox The Lockdown? How will your COMMUNITY Boombox the Lockdown?
Here are some ideas: Give your neighbors a shout and a wave while you dance and sing along together. You can make and put up signs, banners and lights in your windows, or create some art out on the sidewalk. You can bike or drive around the neighborhood with the windows down and radio blasting WORT 89.9 fm. Feel free to share your ideas here and inspire more in groups, pages and any other channels of communication. By streaming online, people can listen and participate from anywhere on the planet!
You can also get in on the fun by helping us make a playlist for this day of joyful, appropriate and poignant tunes. Please make your song requests on the Boombox The Lockdown Facebook event page by Saturday, April 25 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. And please join the event that day with Cooper Talbot live streaming on Facebook to send shout-outs to friends, family, essential personnel and other local heroes, and to share your own photos, videos and posts.
So tune in, turn on, turn it up and help us BOOMBOX THE LOCKDOWN on Sunday, May 3 from noon to 5 pm with your friends at WORT 89.9 FM Madison and wortfm.org – The People’s Station!!
(Rain date is Sunday May 17.)
