24 Hours of Radio Art - “Nine Nine” by Mel Woods

12:00pm - 1:00pm

Thousands of Vancouver commuters ride the 99 B-Line bus route every day. But do you ever really listen to the sounds of the 99? Or are you constantly plugged in to your music, podcast, conversation or phone call? This piece is an uninterrupted audio experience of riding the 99 B-Line from UBC to Commercial-Broadway, as recorded from the very far back right-hand seat. Everything’s there, from waiting in the rain to the beeps of the compass cards to the driver coming over the intercom to remind people to step away from the doors. Think of it as an audio love-letter to public transit and the 99 — the bus we all love to hate.
