It started with a boombox — Dan’s boombox. When lugged around the neighborhood, it sparked an instant party and an atmosphere of collective joy. BBOX was founded on the principle that radio and community are meant to be intertwined. Much more than a radio station, BBOX combines a visible broadcast studio with a cultural venue and community gallery. Locally-sourced content is aired live, online and on-site, from BBOX's home, a shipping container in downtown Brooklyn. Interviews, call-in shows, street journalism, radio documentary, DJs and live music performances offer BBOX listeners the best of what's happening in and around our borough. The rich mix that is Brooklyn — the raucous and raw to the cultured and classic — makes BBOX an experience like no other. BBOX’s aim is to support the exchange of ideas, art and music by providing a local community platform, meeting place and creative launchpad.
