Re-Imagined Radio

Re-Imagined Radio produces and shares radio storytelling in a variety of forms and themes for audiences local to global. Content ranges from classic Old Time Radio (OTR) programs to contemporary narratives. Each episode is a literary-media art performance utilizing the fundamental components of radio storytelling: dialogue, sounds for context and/or effect, and music. This website provides information about these performances and the research inquiries behind them. LEARN more: mission, background, manifesto, outcomes.

Re-Imagined Radio was created and is maintained by John Barber as part of his ongoing Radio Art+Performance+Research (RAPR) research focus. The other components are Radio Nouspace, an experimental online radio ecology, and his own creative practice with radio+sound art.
