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, Andy Stuhl, and Jess Speer. The Conet Project's recordings of numbers radio stations serve as interstitial sounds. Go to wavefarm.org for more information about "The Radio Art Hour" and Wave Farm's Radio Art Archive.
Wave Farm, Montez Press Radio, and The North American Shortwave Association presented Short Waves / Long Distance, an open call for works exploring the sonics of the shortwave radio spectrum (2-30 mHz), and the experience of long distance listening on March 4, 2022. This is Part Two of two parts.

edward ruchalskis radio invention (for sw/ld)
After collecting sounds from various short wave stations, I created radio invention (swld), specifically for this short wave/long distance program and am grateful it was chosen to be included in this broadcast.

Gryphon Rues Cosmos, a Modular Circus on Strange Attractor
This experimental essay derives from Strange Attractor (pub. Inventory Press & Ballroom Marfa), a book exploring the uncertainties and poetics of environmental events, technology, and sound. I constructed a text by mapping and sequencing lines from poems and conversations. My words mix with the words of others: (sequentially) Bertolt Brecht, C.J. Koch, Beatrice Gibson, Juan Pablo Pardo-Guerra, and Douglas Ross. The sound component is a mix of my recordings with appearances by Zoviet France, Jana Winderen, Carlos Pern, Joakim, and impLOG. The title pays tribute to John Cages ___, __ _____ circus on _________, premiered in 1979 as Roaratorio, an Irish Circus on Finnegans Wake; a means for translating a book into a performance without actors, a performance which is both literary and musical or one or the other. (John Cage Trust)

Ricardo Paraso Silvestres Stride
Listening to short-wave radio is like traveling a long path. There are times where the path is sinuous and loud other times silent and flat. You have to be patient. There are times when you hear people other times all you hear are atmospheric sounds and you are all alone. No human presence. The same path changes in accordance to atmospheric phenomena and time of day. Always something new around the corner. Learning to adapt your stride to the path.

Javier Suarez Quiross Dialogues
Late in the night, some weird sounds are captured on the dial. They are far different from our everyday language. Nevertheless, humans are capable of discovering in the succession of sound stimulus the game on which communication is based. The concurrence in time of these signals builds electrical harmonies launched into the radioelectric space, giving voice to machines. All the raw material used in Dialogues comes from RTTY signals recorded in the 20 meter band.

Steve Smiths Radio Fiendly
This composition is from my recording project Spasmodular Sounds from Steves Shortwave, the title of this track is Radio Fiendly.

Dixie Treichels Another Nightlife
Sounds dancing through space and where they might take us. Another Nightlife by Dixie Treichel (Minneapolis Minnesota, USA) is an experimental sound collage created with live shortwave broadcasts, field recordings, original, and found sounds.
