New American Radio Archive: Julie Drizin
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
A partnership of New American Radio and Wave Farm.
Julie Drizin's "After Roe." a blend of documentary and fiction, in which everything is true and false, credible and incredible, real and imagined. The work explores the social and cultural consequences of the criminalizing of abortion in America. It not only looks back at life before Roe vs. Wade legalized abortion, but projects itself forward into an imaginary near future when the U.S. once again denies women the right to legal abortion. Commissioned by New American Radio.
In its ten years as a weekly national series, 1987-1998, New American Radio (NAR) commissioned and distributed over 300 original works: conceptual new drama, associational documentary, language explorations, sonic meditations, environmental compositions, musical explorations and works that pioneer new dimensions in acoustic space. Wave Farm is thrilled to be partnering with New American Radio to ensure these works remain available to listeners today and into the future through this streaming online radio channel, a weekly radio show on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, and a forthcoming online archive.
New American Radio was organized by Helen Thorington, Executive Producer and Regine Beyer, Associate Producer. A special thanks to both Helen Thorington and Jo-Anne Green for their generous support and collaboration of this partnership, and their contribution to the field at large!
