On My Radio
Radio station: Irish Radio
Venue/s of the event: +
Thanks to the internet my radio is my world, but what does the world think of my radio? Not much I’d wager. Why? Well, who knows anything about radio art, don’t mind new music? And isn’t music one of the problems for the art of radio?
Who am I talking to-a select few, or only myself? They have other places for that. Seriously, “radio is what we want it to be” -so why isn’t it then?
