The Spy is On the Air, At Long Last
Yesterday, a good many readers were understandably concerned when, after much fanfare from this blog, The Lost Ogle and other cheerleaders for Oklahoma City’s culture, 105.3 FM “The Spy” did not appear as promised. For those just wakey-waking, “The Spy” went up at 12:01 a.m. this morning. I’ll try to explain this without poking any sleeping corporate bears.
The holdup was caused by one guy — one nameless (to us) guy in an office on the West Coast who needed to sign off on the sale to Ferris O’Brien and Spy Media. When his signature was needed, no one could find him — it was as if he evaporated. ESPN Deportas was still broadcasting on 105.3 while O’Brien basically took all the heat online and his wife kept him away from the computer.
Things are up and running. It will begin to shape into The Spy we knew and loved, complete with DJ voices, very soon. And if you would, for me, please be calm when things don’t work — don’t take the “hair on fire” all-caps stance like a YouTube comments section troll. This is homemade, non-corporate radio run by one of your neighbors, not some faceless functionary in a far-off city, so patience and grace, readers and listeners, patience and grace.
