Radiophrenia open call for submissions

Mark Vernon’s Glasgow based art station back on air in August

Glasgow Art Radio station Radiophrenia returns this summer. Broadcasting between 29 August–11 September, the station’s schedule will include newly commissioned works by Graham Lambkin, Sarah Angliss, Anna Friz and Chris Dooks, and live on air performances by Maya Dunietz, Secluded Bronte, Jim Whelton, Cara Tolmie, The Resonance Radio Orchestra, and many more.

The station has also put out an open call for sound art and radio works to be included in the broadcasts, with the deadline for submissions set for 25 July.

Set up by sound artist and radio producer Mark Vernon, Radiophrenia made its first broadcast in April last year. It goes out live in Glasgow over 87.9FM and can be streamed online. The station was the subject of a feature by Stewart Smith in The Wire 374. Subscribers can read that article over at Exact Editions.
