The Radio Show
In a western society which is dominated by a never ending stream of visual input, and in which ´storytelling´ is being used as a trend word in the world of marketing, we wish to investigate and foster the essence of stories – using the mass medium that has been the oral storytelling format par excellence: radio.
In collaboration with Colaboradio, as part of the FR-BB, Freies Radio Berlin Brandenburg (https://fr-bb.org) community radio project, we launched “STORY FOR FOOD The Radio Show” in September 2018.
This is a monthly live radio show dedicated to stories. Every month, we broadcast stories from our audio archive and invite guests to share live on the air a story on the theme of the month.
Our wish is to foster oral storytelling and help value stories in society, by promoting the practise of sharing them and the culture of listening to them
---- This month our show is dedicated to «Memories» featuring the Icelandic singer and bassist Fríða Dís and her fist solo album «Photoalbum» that is going to be released on February 2020. We will listen to the album in preview, together with the stories behind each song.
«Photoalbum» is a very personal work, with every song connected with a memory in Frida’s life, like a photo in an album, something that frames the music in a visual and symbolic way.
We will also broadcast on our show the radio play «A night in November» by Christina Kyriazidi, dedicated to the fall of the Berlin Wall, with original music by Icelandic musician Smári Guðmundsson and the voices of the actors Daniela Marcozzi, Gigi De Cicco and Christina Kyriazidi.
