The Radio Art Hour: Jacki Apple, Rachel Rosenthal (Audio)

Mar 20, 2021
Produced by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellows and Artistic Director Tom Roe.
This week: Tune in Jacki Apple's "Leap of Faith" from 1992, and Rachel Rosenthal's "filenameFUTURFAX_1990," both introduced by Wave Farm Radio Art Fellow Jess Spear. 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.
