LINCROFT, NJ - On the 1st of October, 90.5 The Night Brookdale Public Radio marks its 40th Anniversary of radio broadcasting by kicking off a year-long celebration.

"Whether residents need vital information in the wake of a disaster or just a little music to get them home after work, 90.5 The Night is there for our community."
In celebration of 40 years of music and service, 90.5 The Night will air specialty programs, contests, membership specials and more. Tune in to hear what 90.5 The Night has in store.
