UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS AAA WUMB/BOSTON is cancelling its annual BOSTON FOLK FESTIVAL for next year, reports the BOSTON GLOBE.
WUMB GM and festival Executive Director PAT MONTEITH tells the paper that no corporate sponsors came on board for next FALL and the organizers felt that holding the event would not be fiscally responsible. "To be very honest with you, I can't even think about another festival until I get the radio station healthy," MONTEITH told the GLOBE.
