The Broadside of Boston was a fanzine devoted to folk music edited by Lynn Musgrave.

Published in the 1960s in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., Broadside, as it was commonly known, was an 11" X 8.5" sized publication of generally 10 pages.

Articles included "Folk Music Plays Huge Part in the 1963 Boston Arts Festival", "First Asheville American Folk festival Being Held", "Jackie Washington Records Third Album". Also included were club news and performance dates, and words and music to two songs by Mark Spoelstra. The cover of Vol. II, No. 8 featured photos from six coffee houses in Cambridge and Boston: Cafe Yana, Club 47, Club Jolly Beaver, The Loft, The Orleans, and Turk's Head.

Letters came from Mark Spoelstra.
