WGXC Radio Hour: Can We Hold The Mic? Workshop

In this three-part workshop, Saturdays, 4 - 6 p.m. May 20, May 27, June 4, 2023 (via Zoom), participants will engage with the widening spectrum of self-broadcasting techniques and examples in the time of podcasts and social audio technology. Participants will explore the changing definition of radio, the parties invested in its creation and consumption, and scheme up a plan to stage a radio intervention.

This workshop, hosted by Wave Farm Radio Art Fellow Iru Ekpunobi, will be collaborative and modular, and designed to take form around the experiences and interests of participants.

Drawing on the history of pirate and internet radio, participants will have the opportunity to learn resources and processes for DIY-broadcasting. Group members will also contribute to a shared ‘sample-bank’, from which the group can borrow in the creation of radio segments that will be broadcast in the final session.

Final session broadcast at the 4pm radio hour:
