Show 0239: Morsonata by Mobile Radio. (Resonance FM)
This is the Radia edit of a hour long live radio show produced by Mobile Radio for the FON festival in Barrow-in-Furness, England. With Barrow being home to Europe’s biggest submarine shed and neighbouring Lake District having hosted Kurt Schwitters for the last years of his life we decided to combine these two influences. Schwitters’ Ursonate performed in morse code by one of Barrow’s retired submariners is the underlying thread to the show that includes live music and field recordings by FON artists in residence Haco, Susan Matthews, Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann.
Show 0251: Glimpses of a revolution backstage. (Rádio Zero)
This program, done in behalf of Rádio Zero, consists of the unedited recordings of the military operational communications that occurred during the 25th April 1974 in Portugal, the so called “carnation revolution”. It is a raw window to the dynamic of a military push converted popular revolution that ended 40 years of dictatorship and jump started dreams and hopes which, like all revolutions, are still to be fulfilled.
