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, Andy Stuhl, Jess Speer, and Jos Alejandro Rivera. 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.
Sounds, stories, and radio art this week from Tetsuo Kogawa; Wax Tailor; Absolute Value of Noise, Anna Friz, and Glenn Gear; Lily Tomlin, Chris Brookes; and Gustavo Matamoros. The show begins with a brief clip of Japanese radio artist, activist, and pirate Tetsuo Kogawa. Then tune in for Wax Tailor's song "On The Air" about radio payola. Then stay tuned for radio artists Absolute Value of Noise, Anna Friz, and Glenn Gear with "Natural Radio" from their 2014 album "Somewhere a voice is calling." Then Lily Tomlin phones in with her classic telephone operator character that still resonates today. Then listen for "The Moratorium" by Chris Brookes, a radio art story of the fishing industry in Newfoundland in 1992. Brookes created this radio piece in collaboration with a dancer, and you can hear the rhythm and repetition and three part structure. The show concludes with "Tracing the Radio Landscape" by Gustavo Matamoros. Commissioned by New American Radio, the work is a sound portrait based on "snapshots" of living room environments that include a radio as an active sound element. The first layer of the work is made up of these recordings. The second layer is constructed from a selection of the same sounds, but manipulated and processed by computer. The third layer, representing the interpretative stage of the work, includes a text developed in collaboration with writer Robert Gregory.
