Citywide Blackout – Thursday 9pm – 11pm

Max Bowen founded Citywide Blackout five years ago to support and promote Boston’s music scene. The show has grown significantly over the years, with many different co-hosts bringing their distinct personalities, experience, and expertise to the table. This show wouldn’t exist if not for their hard work.

Today, Citywide Blackout airs on WEMF every Thursday at 9 p.m. with co-hosts Matt Zappa and Tom Crossman. The show shines the spotlight on musicians, artists, writers, filmmakers, and much more.

In addition, Max is a regular contributor to The Noise Magazine, which covers the Boston music scene through live show and CD reviews and in-depth articles. He has worked as a journalist for Gatehouse Media for the last 10 years. Today, he’s the editor of the Westwood Press and Medfield Press newspapers.

  1. Just checking. Am I still on your show on the 23d?

    Hi Max – was trying to email you the below message but it kept getting sent back, saying the email address was undeliverable – so posting here:


    How are you? It’s been a long time – I don’t think we’ve talked since my days at the Sheriff’s Office. When Jenny Hudson told me that she was reaching out to CityWide Blackout to see if I could get on for my book, I knew something sounded familiar. And when she told me Max Bowen was the host, it all made sense.

    I know Jenny might’ve reached out but I wanted to just shoot you an email and see if you’re interested in having me on regarding my book that Jenny’s Merrimack Media just published. I won their 2015 Outstanding Writer Award. I attached a press release and media kit if you need more info, but I’d be happy to send over anything else you need.

    It’s great to connect, I hope all is well with you. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

    All the best,
