One of Boston's most famous voices is on our airwaves around the clock, but you've probably never noticed it.

As one of the social media editors here at WCRB, I spend a lot of time trawling the web for cool articles and videos to share on our Facebook and Twitter accounts in addition to posts about our own programming. There is a lot of content out there, and only a few things actually end up getting posted each week. So, starting today, I'll share with you a weekly roundup of fun, weird, and just plain interesting things that you might not have seen before, from all corners of the classical internet.
