107.9 micro.fm meshwork


backyard radio snatches the radio from tv towers and broadcasting agencies and instead of showering down on the city, the radio waves beam out of the districts and neighborhoods. a liberalization of the law allows everybody to run a tiny radio transmitter covering the own block and everyone who passionately cares about her neighborhood adopts the medium and populates the ether - laptop-workers, street artists, urbanists, ipod-kids, diy enthusiasts, freelance cyberpunks and hedonists alike. not a decadent experiment in self-reference and individualism, backyard radio maintains a collective channel: this is the place where the sounds of the different neighborhoods hit each other. have you booted your node?

backyard radio berlin is organized by klubradio gmbh in cooperation with: bootlab, berlin; brandenburgischer kunst verein, brandenburg; cornerhouse, manchester; freifunk, berlin; new thinking, berlin; tesla, berlin; and the radia.fm network.

backyard radio berlin is funded by the german federal cultural foundation, kulturstiftung des bundes.
