THE BEST OF THE BOSS
Happy Holidays! All of us at the Boss want to thank you for a great year! In order to give our Boss Jocks time off during the holidays, we're airing our "Best of The Boss" week. Great shows from our Boss Jocks, from earlier in the year. It's a good time to catch up on shows you may have missed, or hear them again if you listened when they were new. Since our Boss Jocks are all volunteer, we like to give them this week off every year, while providing you with some of their best shows. The lineup is the same as our usual schedule, except the shows are encore presentations. Most weeknights, we will repeat Boss 30 countdowns at 6 Pacific. Thanks for a great year, and here's to 2015: The Year of The Boss!
FM Radio Ditches 60s Decade...But 60s Live Forever on The Boss
Have you noticed that more and more FM radio stations have abandoned playing music from the 1960s? That's because, in their opinion, listeners who like 60s music are no longer viable to advertisers and therefore have almost declared 60s songs extinct. WHAT?! At Boss Boss Radio, we LOVE the 60s. In fact, long before there was a 'Totally' anything there was Boss everything! The Boss was born in the 1960s. The decade that ushered in the British Invasion, Psychedlic Rock, The Summer of Love and great groups and artists that changed the landscape forever of Rock music will never be abandoned here! Boss Hits of the 60s and 70s live forever! Boss on!

We're working on some things to help with that message, including virtual and physical "swag" emblazoned with the Boss message. To start, we're giving away our vinyl window stickers. You need one! Just email us with your mailing address and we'll send you a sticker and some handy listener cards to pass out to your friends (while supplies last)!

Getting the music out of your phone and into your car stereo.
There are several options, all of which will probably require a trip to the Radio Shack or electronics dept. at Target.
1) Auxiliary input on your stereo unit - Many units now have an Aux port that you plug a mini-plug into from your phone, you can get a mini-plug wire from most electronics stores.
2) FM Transmitter - If you don't have an Aux port, you can use a wireless FM transmitter, there are several on the market, some good, some just OK, ask a salesperson their opinion.
3) Cassette Transmitter - If you have a cassette deck in your car, you can purchase a cassette transmitter. These are still available at most electronic stores. TuneIn, plug in and Boss on!
4) Bluetooth-enabled Stereo units - If you have a current generation Bluetooth Stereo Unit in your car, you may be able to pair the audio output of your smartphone and listen wirelessly in your car.
