Re-Imagined Radio showcases 18 stories told with sound (Photo) - 01/18/23

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Re-Imagined Radio will open its 11th season with “Short Sound Stories,” a collected sampling of student works from a class offered at WSU Vancouver during the fall 2022 semester. The class, “Storytelling with Sound,” was taught by John Barber, faculty member of the university’s Creative Media and Digital Culture program and founder of Re-Imagined Radio. 

The episode premiers Jan. 30 at 1 p.m. on KXRW-FM, Vancouver, and KXRY-FM, Portland. Subsequent broadcasts and streams will be provided by local, regional and international broadcast partners.

The 18 featured excerpts are told as “soundscapes, dreamscapes, deep questions, audio drama, radio drama, radio historical highlights, memories, emotional states, loss and redemption, scary stories, uplifting stories, collages, sound poems and more,” Barber said. Each piece is an original creation from an emerging local artist. To name a few examples, the stories include a walk around the campus, a soundscape about a typical day, a futuristic space tale, memoirs, nightmares and excerpts from the golden age of radio—the 1930s to 1960s.

Re-imagined Radio premieres episodes on the third Monday of the month on KXRW-FM. In addition, every Sunday, an episode of Re-Imagined Radio is broadcast on KXRW, drawing from previously broadcast episodes. Episodes can be streamed on demand from the Re-Imagined Radio website, www.reimaginedradio.net.

Community Partners

Re-Imagined Radio draws on community voice actors, Foley artists, musicians, sound artists and engineers. Partners include KXRW-FM, KXRY-FM, Marc Rose and Holly Slocum Design.
