STOP T RADIO sign now

Dear Citizens:

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) on October 10th started broadcasting continuous radio advertisements and music at South Station, North Station and Airport Station with a plan to expand the continuous radio broadcast system-wide after Thanksgiving. The radio broadcast will adversely monopolize this historic First Amendment public space:

1. Curtail and Interfere with Conversations of all MBTA patrons
2. Curtail and Interfere with Reading of all MBTA patrons
3. Target ads to all School Children who use the MBTA
4. Curtail and Eliminate Subway Performances

We, the undersigned, support the diversity of expression of patrons and artists in the subway. We petition Governor Deval Patrick and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Board of Directors to stop the T-Radio broadcasts.

    Why not spend the financial resources to install displays of train locations and points of congestion. This would do wonders to alleviate rider frustration. Knoweldge is always better.

    Please do not allow the radio broadcasts. Our lives are filled with enough media. TVs in the airports are horrible, radio on the T would be miserable.

    T-Radio is disruptive, obnoxious, and does a great disservice to live MBTA performers. Please do away with this program as room as possible.

    Governor Patrick, you may remember me and Dave as the musicians who sang "A Vote For Deval is a Vote For Us All" at the Shirley fundraising event. Your support in this matter would mean alot to us both as musicians and as subway riders.
