Welcome to "The Radio Art Hour," a show where art is not just on the radio, but is the radio. "The Radio Art Hour" draws from the Wave Farm Broadcast Radio Art Archive, an online resource that aims to identify, coalesce, and celebrate historical and contemporary international radio artworks made by artists around the world, created specifically for terrestrial AM/FM broadcast, whether it be via commercial, public, community, or independent transmission. Come on a journey with us as radio artists explore broadcast radio space through poetic resuscitations and playful celebrations/subversions of the complex relationship between senders and receivers in this hour of radio about radio as an art form. "The Radio Art Hour" features introductions from Philip Grant and Tom Roe, and from Wave Farm Radio Art Fellows Karen Werner and Jess Speer. The Conet Project's recordings of numbers radio stations serve as interstitial sounds. Go to for more information about "The Radio Art Hour" and Wave Farm's Radio Art Archive.
Today's show opens and closes with works from Gregory Whitehead, with "Radio Degree Zero" starting things off, and "Adioradio" ending the show. Then tune in fro works from New American Radio, a weekly national series, from 1987-1998, now in the Wave Farm radio art archives. First tune in for Erik Belgum's 1995 work "Bounced Around" is featured. "Bounced Around" tells the story of a head-on collision between an idealistic law student and a veteran policeman. It is another exploration of what Belgum calls "polyphonic storytelling," a technique that reveals multiple narrative aspects simultaneously. And also tune in to hear Jon Brumit's 2004 work "Catch & Release: Critical Mass." Neighborhood Public Radio is a project led by Lee Montgomery, Linda Arnejo, Michael Trigilio, and Jon Brumit that creates short-term microbroadcasting stations in communities and supports community and artist-created content for broadcast. The projects name, acronym, and even logo are intended as critiques of National Public Radio, making the argument that truly non-commercial and community-based programming can be more powerful and meaningful to people than corporate-sponsored public content. During the 2004 installation of NPR at the Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco, artist Jon Brumit hosted a regular program called "Catch & Release," which featured content gleaned from the streets of the neighborhood, as well as interviews and performances by artists and musicians, musings on garbage and revenge, and a live broadcast from Critical Mass in San Francisco. In this, the first episode, Brumits remote transmitter wasnt working so he presented recordings taken from the streets on his Broadcast Bike, a bike modified with a drainpipe to function essentially as a large phono cartridge on the street, amplifying the sounds of potholes and other street textures, as well as recordings from a Honda Civic Brumit modified to become a percussion instrument/traveling performance. - Described by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2020/2021, Jess Speer.
