24-Hour Michael Bolton Station Declares Bankruptcy

boltonfm.jpgAustin, TX – 12/3/07 — Austin, Texas fans of the singer Michael Bolton will have one less thing to celebrate this holiday season. The 24-hour Michael Bolton radio station will be going off their airwaves later today.

For nearly five months, “Bolton 106 FM” has been a dream come true for die-hard Michael Bolton fans. The venue played Bolton songs around the clock, breaking only for advertisements and tidbits of Michael Bolton trivia.
