Modern Charlies on the MTA

Reply Wed 19 Nov, 2003 09:34 am
The MTA, Boston's subway system, is now the MBTA and while for years it has allowed entertainers to perform in its stations, it is now clamping down. Sunday, I signed a petition to keep music in the subway -- the entertainer said all music would be banned. Monday, a local tv station said just amplifiers.

The entertainer said the ban was offered because entertainers posed security risks. The tv report says amplification keeps riders from hearing PA announcements.

Which version is true?

POM- I don't have the foggiest. But, looking at it logically, the amplification not allowing people to hear announcements makes the most sense to me. As far as security goes, ANYBODY in the train station is a potential problem.
