BOSTON — On Sunday, October 11, the Armenian Independent Broadcasting of Boston will be marking its 40th anniversary!
The event, originally scheduled to take place in Watertown, has been converted to a virtual one, which will air live on October 11, at 2 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, via Facebook Live.
Many renowned artists from around the world will be joining this celebration, with special appearances and performances, including Arthur Ispiryan, Yeva Yeganyan, Erebuni Dance School, Margar Yeghiazaryan, Papin Poghosyan, Herand Markarian, Anush Kirakosyan and many more!
Throughout the past 40 years, Armenian Independent Broadcasting of Boston, founded by the late Jirair Gharibian in October 1980, has aired every Saturday, reaching more than 50,000 Armenian listeners in the Greater Boston area. The program, broadcasted both in Armenian and English, covers national, political, and cultural news and events both in the Diaspora and in Armenia. After the untimely death of Jirair Gharibian, his wife, Yevgine Gharibian, kept the legacy of the founder alive, which continues to this day, uninterrupted.
Since its inception, the radio hour has been diligently and faithfully serving and uniting Armenians in the diaspora. Its unwavering commitment to strengthen and spread Armenian culture has been challenging at times. However, through Mrs. Gharibian’s relentless efforts, the exemplary dedication of many volunteers and the generous support of its listeners, the historic radio hour has endured.
Please join us as we all come together to celebrate this remarkable milestone, in an unprecedented and unique cultural program, that will include performances by many well-known singers, musicians, dances and recitations.
