07_07_BLDG_Voicemailfantasy1.jpgEver wondered what it would be like to discover a secret room in your apartment, hidden, for example, behind a concealed door in the closet? Not necessarily an entire kingdom of Narnia, but maybe a posh master suite, jacuzzi bath, or a forgotten loft with wood ceiling?

Geoff Manaugh of BLDG BLOG -- who happens to live in Los Angeles -- has also indulged this typically New York fantasy. And he's doing an interactive radio show about it. On New York's own WFMU 91.1 FM. With the one and only DJ/rupture. But they need your wild ideas.

So what's your extra room fantasy? You don't have to live in New York to answer. If you woke up in the middle of the night and found a door... where would you want it to go? Call +1 (206) 337-1474 and let us know. If we like your story, we'll put you – anonymous, woven into a background of music, without explanation – live on the air in New York City, then podcasted around the world and available via MP3.


If all goes well, BLDGBLOG speculates, "The city goes wild. Manhattan is full of extra rooms! people scream. There are secret hallways everywhere! People start knocking on walls and rifling through closets..." DJ/rupture's show airs on Wednesday nights, and the first voicemail fantasies should be broadcast within two weeks.
