Re-Imagined Radio

Re-Imagined Radio adapts and shares stories that engage your ears, play out for your mind's eye, and spark your imagination.

Our stories include dramas, comedies, oral and aural histories, documentaries, fictions, soundscapes and sonic journeys, radio and sound art. Each story utilizes the fundamental components of radio storytelling: dialogue, sounds for context and/or effect, and music. We strive for cinematic qualities with our radio storytelling. The pictures are better inside your mind, the screen is larger, and you are the star.

We distribute our stories via broadcast, streaming, and listening events. As a result, our audience is local, and global. We want to connect with each listener, providing radio stories that are engaging, enduring. A respite from the ephemerality of the radio medium. This website provides information about our radio stories and the research inquiries behind them.

Re-Imagined Radio was created and is maintained by John F. Barber, faculty with the Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver. Barber produces and hosts each episode. LEARN more: mission, background, manifesto, outcomes.
