BBOX RADIO, Brooklyn
BBOX spreads love, the Brooklyn way. Founded on the principle that radio and community are meant to be intertwined, BBOX was inspired by the boomboxes and block parties of Brooklyn. When Dekalb Market and Urban Space NY hosted their “Not Just A Container” Competition in the spring of 2011, we proposed our vision for a radio station inspired by our borough, sitting at this intersection between diverse communities. We won, and within months, BBOX was launched from a Dekalb Market cargo container.
BBOX’s aim is to represent the voice of Brooklyn, supporting the exchange of ideas and music by providing a local community platform & meeting place. Through an evolving collaboration with its neighbours — artists, educators, entrepreneurs, civic advocates and everyone in between — BBOX presents a range of engaging radio programs, concerts, workshops, exhibits and talks.
