As of tomorrow, Friday March 13th 2020, we will close down our studio in K-Nippes for all regular live broadcasts due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19. We’ll keep on replaying older shows though 24/7 to make sure the music over at dublab.de/radio will not stop. We suggest checking our Twitter account for all updates and news regarding dublab.
Why the shutdown?
We’re sure that minimizing social contact is crucial at this point to reduce forthcoming pressure on our public health system and ICU’s, and we strongly encourage everyone to take similar measures.
Our recommendation: Please stay at home as much as possible, work from home if you can. Avoid public transport and gatherings and stop going out to bars, clubs and parties. This is not overreacting, doing so will literally save lives in the coming weeks.
Suspending our live broadcasts was not an easy decision, but we treat this as a matter of community responsibility. Social distancing seems to be key at this point and will have a strong positive impact in the coming weeks when cases exponentially materialize in Germany and elsewhere.
