Oh, Hello Boston is an independent radio station founded by Sooz in March 2020 during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking to establish an online streaming station dedicated exclusively to New England music, she joined forces with long-time Boston music scene personality Michelle DiPoaola to develop the curated library of music by bands in Boston and around New England, with selections that date back to the 1970s. Our name was inspired by a phrase that Sooz likes to say: “Oh, hello!“
While we started with the Boston rock scene we’ve been a part of for decades, the sound of Oh, Hello Boston has evolved into a diverse array of styles, from reggae to Americana to synth-pop to art-rock. Anything goes in Boston music, and that’s reflected here on our station. We aim for Oh, Hello Boston to be sonically representative of what one might hear throughout the rock clubs, corner pubs, and live music venues across New England.
Our schedule features speciality shows we’ve put together, from Decade Stroll to New England Roots Reggae to New Music Alert to On The Town With Mikey Dee. Between shows, you’ll hear an eclectic mix of music from our curated library. Say oh, hello right back at us and tell us what you think of the station. We’d love to hear from you! We’re @OhHelloBoson on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. If you’re an artist or band in New England with music to share, please submit your music for airplay consideration.
