Pirate Radio workshop with Radio Arts
Sunday 22 October, 1 – 4pm
£4, 16+, booking required
This workshop will take place at the Museum of Science and Industry
Build your own mini FM transmitter like those that inspired the ‘mini FM’ movement in Japan and Italy in the 1970s. More popularly known as ‘pirate radio’, communities used them to form their own broadcast networks, as the ultra-low wattage of the transmitter circumvented public broadcasting laws. This workshop explores the science and technology of broadcasting and transmission of sound in response to Samson Young’s radio series.
