"480 Minutes" - We're...Back?


As you may know we've been waylaid by a flood that destroyed our Queens NY basement broadcast studio. The entire basement filled with 3 feet of water in about 20 minutes. So that's what they mean by  "flash flooding!" Since before 480 Minutes was called 480 Minutes there have never been 3 consecutive Fridays without a live-hosted new music show on BAGeL Radio, and it's not going to happen now. 

Actually, that's a bit of bravado -- we have no idea if the makeshift "studio" that's been cobbled together will hold up, nor do we know if our frazzled host will hold up, but we're going to give it the old college (radio) try.

So...how's your week going?

Today we will debut new music by Bad Waitress (Toronto, Canada, @BadWaitressBand), Julia Bardo (Manchester, England, England, @IAmJuliaBardo), Pink Turns Blue (Berlin, Germany, @Pink_Turns_Blue), and We Were Promised Jetpacks (Edinburgh, Scotland, @wwpj).

Tune in and chat with other members of our music discovery-loving community on Slack during the live-hosted hours.

Flood Update - Stream Is Back, Rerun Is Running

 


So...a bunch of listeners decided to have a BAGeL Radio listening party on another platform. They decided on the Top Music of 2016 episode of 480 Minutes. I couldn't have them listening elsewhere, without metadata, so a makeshift stream up & running playing that very show right now. (To give you an idea of the level of "makeshift" the monitor has no base and is propped up against a wall).

It's a rerun, but at least it's a hosted show for the first time in over a week!

The backup stream is getting a much-needed rest now after it's longest run ever. It will still be a while before I can actually live-host a show, likely next Friday 9/17, bu for now, enjoy today's best of 2016 rerun. There are 10 hours remaining in the show. I'll figure out what to schedule after it...ummmm...later. Enjoy!

Oh, and the photo above shows the remnants of the BAGeL Radio studio, torn out this week and unceremoniously thrown onto the back of a truck and hauled away yesterday. Sad, isn't it?

Flood Update


Thanks to everyone who reach out with flood relief of all kinds from supportive words to dropping a dime in the Dripsy Jar to making me laugh -- I haven't been able to respond to anyone, but I want you to know your kindness and cheer have helped greatly during this overwhelming, unprecedented-for-these-parts disaster.

Things are moving along thanks in large part to my brother and best friend making their way to Queens today to lend a hand. Both went so far as to lend both of their hands and were extremely helpful. Another bright spot is that the totaled car has been towed and a loaner vehicle has been secured.

Every part of me hurts from all of the lifting boxes and loading bags and packing up and carrying salvageables and dragging and moving damaged furniture and sweeping water and pushing the totaled car to where the tow truck could navigate and of course my favorite: cardboard boxes disintegrating in my hands leaving me with arms full of wet contents. The amount of ruined stuff has surpassed my worst-case projections and I remain concerned about how long cleanup is going to take since so many in Queens were affected making much-needed services including but not limited to trash removal, towing (I know a guy/got lucky), and mold mitigation -- very hard to find at the moment. If you know a guy hook a DJ up, wouldja? Thanks.

Hopefully FEMA will step up with aid for those affected.

There remains much to do before I can think about live broadcasting again, much less listening to submissions to prepare a show. I have been thinking about ways to set up a temporary broadcast studio and I am hopeful that we may miss only one more 480M and one Fuzzy Road radio show. 

Fingers crossed, and thanks again.

We Be Flooded

As you may have heard NYC was pummeled by Ida-related rain which caused New York City's first Flash Flood Emergency (aka lots of flooding in quick-strike fashion. Queens was hit particularly hard registering 11 of the 13 city fatalities.

My basement studio went from dry to holding more than 3 feet of water in under a half hour. The water line on the outside of the building was an Iggy Pop song.

It was bonkers -- cars floating by, whitecaps cascading down driveways...it was bonkers and I never want to experience that again (although I know that this "first flash flood" is not  a once-in-a-lifetme event, it's the new Climate Changed and will only get worse.

Anyway,  the backup stream has been running for about 28 hours now and will continue to do so as we clean up from this unfathomable-for-these-parts disaster.

Wednesday night was spent saving what could be saved in the 20-30 minutes before the water inside had submerged the wall electrical outlets. Thursday was spent assessing the damage, packing up and discarding damaged equipment, artwork, records, and other media…that was rough, and Friday will be as well.

Sadly/obviously this has left me no time to prepare for a show and, truth be told, at the moment there is no studio from which to host a show or even broadcast the way BAGeL Radio normally does, hence the extended back-up stream time.

All of this is to say there will be no 480 Minutes or reruns this weekend.

My soggiest apologies. I'll try to make it up to you.

-Ted
