    STUDIO'S FLODED Posted: Tue 27th Jun 2006 - 13:06

    STEREO 974 is used to being flooded with telephone calls, but it was a different story on Sunday morning 25 June, 2006. A water main in the street fractured and the studios including the office, reception, control room, production and on-air studios were soon under 6" of water. It took quite some time for the relevant plumbers to turn off and make safe the fractured water main. STEREO 974 went off air at approx. 9.30 am when power to the complex was terminated, then it was all hands on deck bailing the water out of the studios. The team working on getting STEREO 974 back on air consisted of our Radio Technicians, Plumber, IT Specialists, Electrician and the list goes on. STEREO 974 was back on air at 6 pm, but unfortunately we will have to rely at this stage on our automated program as the studios are not fit for habitation.

    Today, Monday 26 June, 2006, the insurance assessor attended, and all carpet and underlay have been removed from the complex and De-Humidifiers installed to alleviate moisture problems. STEREO 974 General Manager, Rod Boyd said today "It was a great deal of effort on behalf of everyone here at STEREO 974 from our Technicians, IT specialists, Electrician and everyone else who supported us not only with the initial clean up, but with on going support as well. I have been overwhelmed by the support from our many listeners who have taken the time to call the station and offer their support and assistance. At this stage we have to wait until the moisture and humidity readings are taken over the next few days, but we would expect to resume live programming possibly from this Thursday onwards. We are on the air, and will continue to broadcast, minus our live programs, as we have to act responsibly and protect our greatest assets, Our Volunteers, and all our equipment. All damages sustained are covered by Insurance, and the Studios and Complex will be reinstated as soon as possible."
