The first NPR broadcast at 21 Grand


In January of 2004, NPR (Neighborhood Public Radio) examined, in the form of a 4 day performance, how a different kind of Public Radio station might operate. Over the course of 4 days at 21 Grand Art Gallery and Performance space, various artists local to Oakland created audio content intended for broadcast. This content ranged from a daily left wing fanatical talk show broadcast.... to manipulations of recorded signals from the local "public" radio outlet.


Each evening was concluded with a night of audio performances by local musicians/sound artists who might not otherwise have beenrepresented on "public" radio.

What follows is the schedule of performers during the 1/14-1/18th NPR show at 21 Grand gallery in Oakland.
