For as long as I can remember, WCRB radio has sponsored a series of lunchtime concerts at Copley Square park. The concerts took place every Thursday in both June and September.
But not this year. I wrote to WCRB asking where to find next month's schedule, and got this reply from Mark Edwards, the station's director of programming:
We simply didn't have the budget to pull it off, I'm afraid. The concerts were very expensive for us to host, and there has been dwindling support from advertisers. Additionally, the city was unable to help us defray costs.
