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.
Tune in two works today: Knut Aufermann's "Lee de Forest Night Loops" (2008) and Gregory Whitehead's "Display Wounds" (1985). As part of the 2008 AV Festival in Newcastle, UK, Knut Aufermann and Mobile Radio helped set up two temporary radio stations for the nine-day run of the festival. Aufermann built a feedback installation inspired by Lee De Forests invention of the vacuum tube to create live sounds for overnight broadcasts. The installation used feedback between audio and radio equipment, and each of the nine nights were unique. Broadcast for the full run of the festival on Soundscape FM and Resonance FM at MIMA in Middlesbrough, the feedback loops were also broadcast for two nights on a local community radio station until fears of alienating listeners led them to discontinue broadcasts in favor of their usual Europop programming. Aufermann later produced a condensed version of the broadcasts on the Radia network. - Introduced by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2020/2021, Jess Speer. Gregory Whitehead's "Display Wounds" was a woundscape aired on New American Radio in 1985.
