B Radio: The Occult: I Think Up Demons

B Radio: a series of radio shows mashing b-list genres with radio art. Each B Radio episode features a theme to structure the improvisational nature of the shows, though tangents are frequent and encouraged. It's live radio, streamed, with special guests and live audience. The core group of performers play live instruments and electronics, sample wildly, speculate broadly, and have been known to sing.

NRRF is a collaborative effort to make unlicensed neighborhood radio art.

For this Chicago iteration, the core group of noisemakers consists of Jonny Farrow, Anna Friz, Steve Germana, Jeff Kolar, Peter Speer, with Sarah Knudtson (documentation and props wrangling).

Earlier projects include street radio in Montreal (2001), the NRRF Radio Roadshow (2004), and Radio Free Parkdale in Toronto (2005-2007).

July 17:  The Occult: I Think Up Demons

Radio has often been implicated in spiritualist encounters. We put the waves to the test in search of otherworldly communicants, with all the safety precautions of exorcism at the ready. One brave (or foolhardy?) pirate voyages into the interior space of the radio itself, but will he survive?
