The Shut Down


What shall I say:
Looks really shitty at the moment with the show on Radio Radius. Might not be able to do any show in the near future... why you ask?
Welll here's a quick breakdown:
There were some riots going on in Zurich. First one was kinda demonstration for more free space for the youth and parties, that aren't completely focused on commercial success. As soon as some drunks climbed one of the little shelters @ Bellevue, the whole situation skipped. Riots started...
Following weekend, same scene different place; although this time it was an accumulation of three independent events...
Friday Night: An illegal Event started as a Dance Party / Demonstration resulted in an outburst of mindless violence...
Saturday Afternoon: Some Christian Conservatives protested against the right for abortion, while some more or less radicalized leftist tried to interrupt them... also ended in troubles with the Police
Saturday Night: Some imitators with no message whatsoever took over the streets and had some fights with the Police... mindless destruction

I'm not against a reasonable protest, not at all, but as soon as there is violence involved, I don't want to have something to do with it and find it unacceptable.

But now what has that to do with Steppas Choice?
Well with the show actually nothing...
But with this "Shoot the messenger" alike situation:
The Police don't know how exactly this demonstrations were organized, most likely by SMS and Social Networks... and it seems like someone or some people misused the shout box to call out for this events... and all of that with the moniker "studio crew"
As you might know I use "Steppas Choice Studio Crew" in the (too) easy accessible shout box and I know that we're not aloud to say illegal, racist, discriminating or something alike on the radio.... but I remember, that I saw messages on the shout box written with a official looking moniker like STAPO or alike saying that's illegal to call out for illegal events... but I never saw an actually call out for one of this events...

The moniker issue.... we'll if you have used the shout box you know that you can pick any moniker and I mean any....

So last Monday (19.9.2011) the Police informed the FIT (ETH) which runs the Radio Radius about this and as an immediate reaction they shut down the shout box...
and by now you can't even reach the webpage....

So what is happening?
Well that's the past... I'm waiting now for any updates from the management.... I still don't really know..

I will keep you updated...
