This coming September 14th, hundreds of boombox radios will synchronize their dials to 89.9 WORT from 2-8 pm as they celebrate Madison’s 2013 Boombox the Wasteland. This music celebration seeks to reclaim and revitalize the unused space at Union Corners, on Winnebago and S. Sixth St., by creating an atmosphere of community and vitality. The live broadcast will infuse the day’s activities, which include roller skating, sculpture, planting, dance troupes, parades, grilling, arts and crafts, double dutch, skateboarding and hanging out.
A highlighted activity this year is the creation of 50 Aldo Leopold Benches. Each bench will be sponsored by a local business, person or organization and assembled at the event. Finished benches will be go out into neighborhoods where permitted. Please join in the assembly line for an hour or two at the event.
Bring food to share, blankets, chairs and – most of all – BRING YOUR BOOMBOX!!!!!
