Dan talks with Carter Alan, disc jockey and radio announcer who has been working professionally in Boston since 1979. His work began at the student radio station at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by 19 years at Boston radio station WBCN. Alan is perhaps most famous for playing U2 before they were popular in the United States, helping them to "break" the market[citation needed]. In 1998, he moved to WZLX. As the Assistant Program Director, Alan also hosts the midday show from 10am-2pm, compiles the Rock 'n' Roll Diary, hosts "Sunday Morning Blues" every Sunday morning, and produced WZLX's first charity CD, From the Vaults. Mr. Alan talks to the Sink tv about his new book, The Rise And Fall Of WBCN.
