Max Bowen founded Citywide Blackout more than four years ago to support and promote Boston's music scene. The show has grown significantly over the years, with many different co-hosts bringing their distinct personalities, experience, and expertise to the table. This show wouldn’t exist if not for their hard work.

Today, Citywide Blackout airs on Dig Radio every Sunday from 6-7 p.m. with co-hosts Matt Zappa, Tom Crossman, and Matt Martino, who hosts his own monthly segment for local film and performing arts. The show shines the spotlight on musicians, artists, writers, filmmakers, and much more.

In addition, Max is a regular contributor to The Noise Magazine, which covers the Boston music scene through live show and CD reviews and in-depth articles. He has worked as a journalist for Gatehouse Media for the last 10 years. Today, he’s the editor of the Westwood Press and Medfield Press newspapers.
