Launch of the digital version of the Amsterdam Radio Collection (1991) Amsterdam, September 2016 By Geert Lovink and Bart Schut We’re proud to present a sample of the Amsterdam free radio sounds from the early 1990s. It is a collection of audio cassettes, compiled in 1991, which we’ve digitized. The background of this audio collection is the following. In Summer 1991 a few Amsterdam free radio makers came together to document the existing free radio culture that had developed over the...

The 2010s was a time of great ambivalence and disillusionment when it came to me and broadcast radio. Yeah, it's true. My love of radio sort of ended around 2008 or so, and about midway through the ensuing decade (by the time Iheartradio was taking form and becoming aggressive) my interest in local radio was dead. Although great technological advances were being made in broadcasting during this time, I didn't really care very much since we were watching local radio turning into something...

This is the broadcast for Equalizing-X-Distort for Sunday, August 11th, 2019. EXD is a weekly hardcore punk show broadcast on CIUT 8.5 FM.  Tonight's show starts off with bands playing in Toronto in the next couple of weeks. This includes an interview with Muro conducted last October in the back alley of Faith/Void before their show. Muro will be in town for the Latin Punk thing fest and so it was a good time to hear this interview.

Paul Peters made his first radio broadcast, on Radio Essex, at the age of 16 in November 1965, using the name Paul Freeman. This offshore pirate radio station broadcast from an old WW2 Naval Fort called Knock John, which stands in the middle of the Thames estuary. In the 70's he presented shows for the BBC in the south of England. He then went to work as an appeals director for a large U.K. charity, and he thought that his broadcasting days had come to an end. But in 2006 he got a call, right...

Shortwave pirate radio broadcasts are some of the most original & entertaining programming one can hear. These stations bring the reality that radio can be spontaneous, creative & unrestrained along with a direct connection to the listener, even if they're across the ocean! The recordings from the 90's were made with a Grundig Satellit 500/random longwire (94'-96') & a Drake R8A/50ft. sloper (96'-00') on both reel to reel & cassette. Unless noted, the rest of these (2000 &...

Mostly North American free/pirate shortwave radio broadcasts, I do occasionally snag a European station when conditions are favorable. Most were recorded using a direct line-out connection from a Palstar R30C receiver to a computer, using a shielded audio patch cord fitted with simple ferrite chokes to control the hum/buzzing noise that sometimes occurs with direct connections between a...
