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.
Yvette Janine Jackson's 2021 work "Test Flight No. 1" and Diana Chang's "Falling Free" from Jan. 1, 1989 are featured. Jackson brings attention to historical events and social issues through her radio operas. Jackson's work is inspired by early 20th-century radio plays and theatrical sound design. She writes, "Test Flight No. 1 is an etude for a series of compositions themed around commercial space tourism." In Chang's work, a curious repeat of the history of Asian immigrants, she focuses on an elderly Chinese-American woman left behind in an American suburb by a husband who wishes to return to his native China. More Americanized than he, her solitude proves a liberation. Told as a monologue with flash-backs to scenes from her earlier life, Falling Free is a delicate, poetic rendering of ambiguities: the ambiguity of the Chinese-American experience, and of human desire. An adaptation of a short story by the same name. Commissioned by New American Radio. Finally, we end things with Gregory Whitehead's brief "Adioradio."
