BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS 1992

Date: April 14, 1992
Venue: Wang Center, Boston

An even-keeled, even-tempered awards show? Is it possible? They said it couldn’t be done in Boston, given the tensions and controversies of past Boston Music Award events. Last year’s event was a step toward harmony, though WBCN still withheld support and took some potshots.
