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 wavefarm.org for more information about "The Radio Art Hour" and Wave Farm's Radio Art Archive.
This week we hear two works from Guillermo Gomez-Pena, from the New American Radio archives. "I Don't Speak English Only, Vato!" and "Menage Trade." "I Don't Speak English Only, Vato!" challenges the notion of English as the official language of the United States, in light of the growing population of Spanish speakers and the xenophobic backlash against bilingualism. Artists Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Sergio Arau, Yareli Arizmendi, Betto Arcos, and Ellen Klaver humorously criticize the easy "love for the exotic" tendencies of American society, and its rejection of otherness and complexity when it appears to threaten U.S. values and culture. On "Menage Trade" Gomez-Pena collaborates with radio journalist Betto Arcos and Yareli Arizmendi, Sergio Arau, Mireille Perron and others. An experimental multilingual radio program created in response to the increasing economic and cultural ties between Mexico, the United States and Canada in the wake of the North America Free Trade Agreement. Humorous, satirical and a critical exploration of culture, language, and nationality, it questions the real issues before us in NAFTA: cultural homogenization, economic dependency and human displacement.
