Guess Who’s Coming to… Radio Without Boundaries?
Toronto. 2011. Radio players. Wave makers. Mic shakers. Street smart transmission art. All of this May 27th-29th at the 2011 Radio Without Boundaries Conference. So who’s gonna be there?
All these beautiful people and more! I made this handy game board for myself and co-blogger Andrea Silenzi so we don’t mix up say a Shea Shackelford with an Andy (no last name). They both have such fantastic hair!
But maybe you Transomers are so versed in the international radio landscapes that all these faces look like family to you? Well if so – here’s a challenge. If you’re the first to write in and match all the names to faces, we will mail you something mind-blowingly good from the conference. Could be a sassy piece of RWB merch, or a transom t-shirt, or an audio postcard from your favorite RWB celebrity, even a small jug of high grade maple syrup purchased at the farmers market and signed by Jonathan Goldstein. We will work with you to make your RWB dreams come true, whoever, wherever, you are. Just leave a comment below this post with everyone’s names (1st row, left to right… 2nd row, left to right, etc). *also – Andrea Silenzi and myself, Jennifer Brandel may also appear on this board…
Substance starts here: For those who’ve never been, the RWB conference takes place in the gorgeous Wychwood Barns. And it’s a weekend for ”those with a general interest in radio and transmission art, sound and radio artists and/or those who just want something more from radio.” The 2011 line-up of international radio art luminaries includes Jonathan Goldstein (CBC Radio’s Wiretap), Colin Black (Frequency Oz, Australia), Nora Young (CBC Radio’s Spark), Matt Smith (Can), Hank Bull (Can), Roman Mars (REMIX Radio from PRX, USA), Gregory Whitehead (USA), Darsha Hewitt (Can), Shea Shackelford (USA), Peter Courtemanche (Can) plus many more.
