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, Jess Speer, and Andy Stuhl. 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.
This week tune in for radio art works from Terry Riley and Jon Rose, both from the New American Radio archives (now hosted at First, Terry Riley's "Autodreamographical Tales" from Jan. 1, 1996. "Autodreamographical Tales" is a brand new and excitingly different work from "the father of minimalism." It's an electro-acoustic radio opera based on a series of short stories from Riley's 1995 Dream Journal. All the music was inspire by and composed specifically and interactively with these tales. Also emerging and submerging from the text is a dream-like anthem, "The Circle of Wolves." Its text reveals the perceived apprehensions of artists, gays, immigrants and people of color who live in a sometimes hostile and button-downed society. Next tune in for Jon Rose's "The Long Sufferings of Anna Magdalena Bach" from Jan 1, 1998. "The Long Sufferings of Anna Magdalena Bach" is a set of variations on a recently discovered theme by Johann Sebastian Bach's second wife: mother of 13 children, hard-working housewife and composer. Colorful, intense and irreverent, this work presents Anna Magdalena in her own voice, commenting on her husband, their life together and on her times. It is an abridged version of a 45 minute commission of the ABC Australia's Listening Room series, 1996.
