LINCROFT, NJ – For the fifteenth year in a row, Brookdale Public Radio, 90.5 The Night, has been recognized for its continued support of live, local music.
On Dec. 17, the member-supported radio station was once again named “Top Radio Station in Support of Live Music” during the annual Asbury Music Awards at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
“We are delighted to win this award again,” said station manager Tom Brennan, thanking the supporters and fans who voted for the station in the run-up to this year’s awards ceremony.
“Our service to the local community is something we are proud of, and our support of local music is a huge part of that.”
Over the past four decades, The Night has earned a reputation for backing the efforts of local artists, giving unsigned musicians a platform to be heard and helping them reach new audiences beyond Monmouth County, Brennan said.
The station’s free “Songwriters on the Beach” concert series, which pairs local musicians with national acts each summer on the Belmar boardwalk, was also nominated for the Asbury Park Music Awards’ “Best Thing to Happen in 2014/15” honor.
