To celebrate more than two years on the air and the recent move to their new Bushwick studio, Bondfire Radio is hosting a festival/live broadcast marathon this Sunday on the covered roof of the Vazquez Building. Chef Airis Johnson (formerly of The London NYC) will provide the food alongside other beverage, food and dessert vendors, so come check out the amazing rooftop views and, oh yeah, 12 hours of panels, live music, and the most diverse lineup of local radio around.
While reporting from remote locations for NY1, Roger Clark has sung Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” and shredded on the air guitar for a solid minute of live television. For the past decade, viewers of his feature stories have come to know Clark as a loveable dork with rock star reveries. But he really does have a bit of musical street cred. Clark and co-worker Bunny Hirsch play monthly gigs as Perp Walk, a drum/bass duo with songs like “Tranny Man” and “Stench In My Kitchen.” They’re jamming tonight at Hank’s Saloon and then again in March at The Way Station, as part of a Lou Reed tribute.
