Jim  Magay, co-founder of Lincoln Street Area Business Association
Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, August 12, 2012 - 10:00pm

In an encore episode of The Business Beat, Steve D'Agostino interviews Jim Magay, the co-founder of the Lincoln Street Area Business Association and co-owner and co-operator of Magay & Barron Eye Center on Lincoln Street. Jim is also a founding member and a current board member of Worcester Local First. This episode aired originally on April 12, 2012.

The brand new Lincoln Street Area Business Association’s Facebook page proclaims: “Lincoln Street … the place to meet, shop, eat, play, work, live.” As a January 6, 2012 Telegram & Gazette article noted:

• “With up to 35,000 cars traveling Lincoln Street every day, traffic safety is a goal for the group.”
• “Streetscape improvements and community involvement, such as charitable giving, are also on the group's agenda. In August, an association food and toy drive was held, with strong response.”
• “The organization is working on its marketing plan. It is also asking members to bring a prospective member to meetings as it works to grow its ranks.”

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
