Description

Boston's Other Voice was an LGBTQ-themed radio magazine that ran from February 1981-November 1989 and created by Don Latulippe, public affairs programming director at WROR-FM 98.5 (the FM sister station to WRKO-AM, both owned by RKO General) and psychotherapist Dennis Iadarolla.

The show was hosted from 1981-1985 by Dennis Iadarolla and from 1986-1989 by Peter Stickel. Don Latulippe hosted an interview with Stickel during this period, as well.

These digitized recordings were rescued as the station was sold and the show cut due in part to the public affairs program requirement ending during the Reagan administration.
