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.
When I arrived at Velo, the bike shop on Dekalb Avenue in Bushwick, I was directed down a dimly lit staircase to the basement. In a small room, the only one not stocked to the gills with bicycle guts, I found Rob Prichard and Tom Tenney, creator/producers of Radio Free Brooklyn. They’ve outfitted the room, which they rent from Velo, with turntables, microphones, mixing boards and computers in the name of launching Brooklyn’s own 24/7 online radio station.
