Saturday Afternoon Show: Videofreex

2015-01-31 4:00pm – 6:00pm

Host Tom Roe is joined by Curator Andrew Ingall to preview the exhibition "Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television," which will be on view at the Dorsky Museum of Arts at SUNY New Paltz February 7 - July 12, 2015. The exhibition surveys the history and mythology of the Videofreex, a collective of artists, storytellers, and activists who produced and disseminated alternative media across New York and other U.S. communities during the 1970s. They lived in Greene County in the early 1970s and produced Lanesville TV, perhaps the first pirate television station in the United States. The Videofreex exploited the new technology of portable video as an emerging medium for creative expression and as a democratic tool for disseminating independent points of view in a pre-digital age. By establishing the first pirate television station in the United States, the Videofreex created a base for media education and training, and an informal media art center hosting local and international visitors.

Radio Relay

2015-07-18 – 2015-07-18

DinahBird's "Radio Relay" is the story of a box, a leather box that is over eighty years old and has lived in three different countries, and on two different continents. It contains over fifty 78 rpm recordings of classical music and opera hits of the day. The box and its contents were inherited by the artist's grandmother who was born on the Gulf Islands, British Columbia, in 1910. She grew up on Salt Spring. She took the box with her when she left the island in 1925 and carried it to her various adult homes until her death in 2000. In September 2012 DinahBird retraced the box’s long journey and took the records back to the island where they were first played.

Radio Relay is a vinyl release consisting of the the box of 78's audio (24:00), and on the other side of the release, a series of locked groves. In 2015, the project will relay across the globe, passed from one radio station to the next.

DinahBird writes, "The scratches formed en route will become part of the piece, mirroring the journey my grandmother’s records made." Over twenty stations, including Wave Farm's WGXC-FM, will participate by receiving the record, broadcasting the work, making an entry into the enclosed log, and then mailing it to the next station. Wave Farm's WGXC-FM will receive "Radio Relay" from the station VOBB (Bonne Bay, Newfoundland, Canada) and following a July 18 broadcast on 90.7-FM, send the record on to CFRC (Kingston, Ontario, Canada).
