Long time no see! This is a special episode resulting from an experiment, in which I built a radio transmitter. With the help of the Tin Can Studio in Vancouver, we arranged for 3 full days of radio mayhem, driving around in an Airstream trailer and broadcasting to whoever lay within a 5-block radius. The sounds below are the live raw files from our broadcast. Beware – it’s a different style of radio than my normal podcasts, as we threw the fancy production out the window in favour of spontaneous live energy.
The first link is the archive from host Matty Harris, featuring live noise performances, and interviews on the topic of “How Radio Changed My Life.” Matty is one of my favorite campus/community radio hosts.
The second link is from the day I hosted, featuring interviews about Media Democracy, live music performances, discussions about Headbanding, and the city coming by to shut us down, and then leaving, at which point we started again.
