Getty ImagesWe broadcast at 103.5 FM on weekdays from 4 a.m. through 3:59 p.m. Another organization has the license for the evenings, but doesn’t plan to be on the air until some time later in 2016. We also broadcast during assorted hours on the weekends. A note: we have a low-power FM license. That means you can pick up the station through most of New Haven (except the southern tip and sometimes downtown) and Hamden and much of East Haven, North Haven, Woodbridge, and West Haven.

“This Looks Like North Haven In The 1960s”

Allan Appel PhotoLocal developer Andrew Consiglio wants to turn a long vacant empty square of prime real estate at the corner of Olive and Greene streets into a two-family house.

That was well and good with the members of the Historic District Commission (HDC), to whom he applied for a certificate of appropriateness, because the proposed house sits in the heart of the Wooster Square Historic District.

However, commissioners said Consiglio did not provide enough detail — about the porch, windows, doors, roof, and general style. They urged Consiglio and his design colleague to look around the neighborhood and come back with a context, a vision, and a lot of the detail that the Historic District Commission (HDC) requires.

That was two years ago.

Oyster Farm Expansion Proposed

Patriquin Architects PhotoPeople in the Heights generally love the oyster farm that for decades has been harvesting, shucking, and shipping the bivalves from the banks of the Quinnipiac River just below the Grand Avenue Bridge.

Norm Bloom & Sons keeps alive the local oystering industry and the working waterfront that are part of the area’s history and appeal.

An eclectic billing of hometown electric guitar-adjacent acts took the stage at the still fresh-faced State House to celebrate the release of headliner Polluter’s new record, The Tree That Owned Itself. As a thank you to the crowd, each attendee received a ticket to a free digital download of a cross-genre session that explores the far reaches of artsy jazz punk.

Nous Makes Noise At Lyric Hall

by Allison Hadley | Dec 17, 2018 7:32 am

Allison Hadley PhotosThe night started later than billed, allowing a small but attentive crowd to filter into the Lyric Hall, and then opener DaDA Mr. — Christopher Cavaliere on guitar with painter Marcella Kurowski, of Bridgeport — glided silently onto the stage. Cavaliere sat down, center stage, without a spotlight. The projector behind him showed the quick work of Kurowski, paint splattered and smocked, shadowy hands and brushes streaking the white screen in blue or purple.
