What: In March 1973, Boston’s WILD was sold to Sheridan Broadcasting Network, who switched the station from rock and roll to an urban contemporary format. At points WILD was the only station playing R&B music in Boston.

In celebration of Black Music Month, TheUrbanDaily’s “It’s All Black Music” presents 100 Rewarding Black Music Moments, sponsored by Southwest Airlines.

Each Black Music Moment is associated with an actual place that you can visit. During the month of June, check in to at least three of these places on Foursquare to unlock TheUrbanDaily’s exclusive “It’s All Black Music” Badge. Check out the locations and details on our Foursquare page!
