Hosted by Tom Roe.

A special edition of the WGXC Saturday Afternoon Show featuring artists Alexis Bhagat and Tianna Kennedy.

Alexis Bhagat's work is dedicated to the destruction of authorship and authority through the cultivation of new forms for radically poly-vocal sound, transmission of promiscuous conversation, and obsessive never-ending correspondence. Currently, Bhagat is intrigued by the "lecture" as a form ripe for intervention. He speaks and writes on anarchism, prisons, and sound art, and is a founding member of the August Sound Coalition.

Kennedy’s experiments in transmission began as a logical extension of her literary and cello career as monthly improvisatory radio broadcasts in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2003. Kennedy was a founding member of the August Sound Coalition, an autonomous media project, which, in one manifestation, created a popular Art and Action Radio station coincident with the 2004 Republican National Convention. She was also a founding member of the Empty Vessel Project, an Action, Art and Design Center fostering projects focused on Sustainable Living in Urban Landscapes, as well as Project Manager for SWOON's ambitious Swimming Cities adventure in the Adriatic Sea. Most recently Kennedy has been living in Delaware County New York in a town called Bovina Center and working on a farm in Hamden.
