We are an online (streaming only) diy radio operating out of an
attic public space in Seattle's Central District. We feature found sound, field recordings, story-telling, dream-collecting, radio plays, live house shows, local in-home performances and content given to us BY YOU. We support local and northwest music and other underground music from around the world. We broadcast 24 HOURS A DAY everyday.
sporadic (first show: NW WOMEN: Sun. Dec. 11th 8pm PST)
Program Description: Thematic shows primarily broadcasting excerpts from cassette albums DIY'ed in the 80's and 90's. Playlists comprised of digitized tracks choreographed to tell a story about the artist, about the movement, and about the times. Nostalgic, perhaps. Historical, OK. Archival, absolutely. Just another effort to preserve and share the counter offense to a once very pervasive disco, punk, pop pop-culture. In a vinyl formatted, record industry driven environment. The title of the show is inspired by (or stolen from) the courageous efforts of Robin James. A master archivist of the scene. Set lists and audio archives of the show shall be made available. Peace. DJ K7

Next Sunday, March 24th at 6pm, as part of Magma Fest 2013, Hollow Earth Radio presents another in-studio reading featuring writers affiliated with local literary juggernaut Babel/Salvage. It's open to the public and will present a diverse selection of spoken word and other vocal delights.
With performances by:
Morris Stegosaurus (w/ musical backup)
Ryan A Johnson
Jason Conger & Joe Thompson (working as a duo w/ fx pedals and gadgetry)
Facebook event: here!
Babel/Salvage on Facebook: here!
“Morris Stegosaurus (aka Keith Morris Kurzman) is a difficult artist to categorize, and yet he is undeniably entertaining and provocative. His performance is highly charismatic in the full slam poetry tradition. But the through-lines of his poems often relate symbolic and surreal situations as dialogues with personified objects, without regard for whether those objects are concrete or abstract. Where slam poets are often literal, didactic, or operating in an absence of irony, Stegosaurus may be whimsical, sarcastic, or idiosyncratic. So yes, there is meaning in his stage name, as a banner for the oblique language he brings to the stage. Often it's better to not attempt to interpret Stegosaurus' performances but simply let them happen to you; they may be more about the phenomena of language and performance than about the subjects in their titles.” --Kurt Heintz
...born on planet terra to hue-man parents, he has been writing "poetry" since some one handed him a pencil pen feather microphone brush tongue gun bow and arrow, hitting his targets deaf dumb and blind all have experienced korvus's gift of the present moment...
Ryan A Johnson
Ryan A. Johnson graduated from Western Washington University in 2009. He now works for a large aerospace company but this has nothing to do with college. Expect his new book, "You Will Get In Trouble" to be released by Babel/Salvage in the coming months. He apologizes in advance, not for the book, but for everything else.
Jason Conger & Joe Thompson
Jason Conger is artillery. He lives in a thatched hut which is near Austria. Jason saunters. He is the shoplifter. In his free time, when he's not addicted to anglicizing geese, he is jumbled. He feels abstemiously about the hard tricycles. He supports the unicycles at FEMA. His favorite type of poetry is of the whale shark style; his least favorite type is of the tapir style. He dreams about squinting at the nimble glasses. When life is neither truthful nor beautiful, Jason – or J-bone – goes hunting in the Horsehead Nebula, an artery quartered beside the system.
Joe Thompson is a mystery.
Sarah Galvin is the author of The Stranger’s Midnight Haiku series, which are neither haiku nor at midnight. She has a blog called The Pedestretarian, where she reviews food found on the street. The thing she loves most about reviewing discarded food is receiving text messages that say things like “I hear the bus stop on 3rd and Union is covered with ham.” Sarah is a poetry MFA student at University of Washington, and her poems can be found in Hoarse, Proximity, Pageboy, Dark Sky, and Ooligan press’s Pacific Poetry Project, set to be released in March 2013.
Bryan Edenfield is the co-founder of Babel/Salvage and the author of Glossolopolis Number One and 33 Opening Paragraphs. He has a dog and is from the desert. His degree is in philosophy and history that comes from Northern Arizona University, so don't worry.
