Sam and I recently submitted some of our audio pieces to the Radio Futura 2009 which is the radio station that operated during the Future Places event in Oporto, Portugal in October. We were really pleased to be asked to supply content for the station. We sent over seven pieces of work that were a mixture of Knowledge Transfer Fellowship work between BCU and the Birmingham Music Archive and other partners Sam has worked with as part of the AHRC project.
Future Places is explores Digital Media and Local Culture and is six days of exhibitions and events addressing the potential and the impact of digital media on local cultures and took place October 13-17, 2009 and is a project of the UT Austin|Portugal Program
Radiofutura broadcast 24/7 via RadioZero and from 91.5 FM Frequency during futureplaces 2009. A full webstream of the programme is now in the works.

The two pieces that Radio Futura ran were the Birmingham Popular Music Archive Phil Lynott documentary which also aired on BBC WM, Absolute and Spin FM and Music in Moseley.
This was another example of the Fellowship work in practice and the wide ranging ways of disseminating that work to audiences, in this case internationally.
