My friend Thomas sent me this new website called Radio Garden. This website is so cool (for a nerd like me). You can scroll around the world dialing up radio streams. Yup, CFOX is on there…and so is an AM Christian radio station in the middle of The US or pop radio in Spain!
The website says, “By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. Radio Garden allows listeners to explore processes of broadcasting and hearing identities across the entire globe. From its very beginning, radio signals have crossed borders. Radio makers and listeners have imagined both connecting with distant cultures, as well as re-connecting with people from ‘home’ from thousands of miles away – or using local community radio to make and enrich new homes.”
Make sure you click the stories section…. “where listeners past and present tell how they listen beyond their walls. How do they imagine the voices and sounds from around they globe? How do they use make themselves at home in the world?”
