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.
A Garden in the Air: Datscha Radio is a radio sound collage created by German radio artist Gabi Schaffner. Since 2012, Datscha Radio has been a nomadic and temporary radio station that Gabi Schaffner co-organizes with local participants wherever she may be. In Gabi Schaffners words, Datscha Radio relies on the garden as a matrix and metaphor for organic growth, communication, and community...[T]he radio station travels to nearby and distant gardens, broadcast at exceptional or unusual times, and combines radio art with contemporary discourses on ecology, interstellar matter, listening and knowledge cultures. A Garden in the Air: Datscha Radio is a radio sound collage of broadcasts from Datscha Radio Berlin, which Gabi Schaffner realized collaboratively with the radio makers and artists Kate Donovan, Niki Matita and Helen Thein.
