Formerly, there was a weekly A-VOYCE Radio Show featuring Asian American youth from the Greater Boston area. A-VOYCE youth voiced their opinions about issues that affect Chinatown, themselves, and their communities. Discussions were taken to the air in a 2-hour show that also included a mix of Asian International and American music of all styles.

The shows are posted on archive.org, where they can be streamed or downloaded:
