Radio Event:
No. 9: Boiling Water

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 14 min
Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA

One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory, Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California. This program, entitled “Boiling Water” was created by Philip Corner in conjunction with Charles Amirkhanian and his wife Carol Law. In order to participate, the audience was encouraged to listen to the radio while standing near the stove. The general idea was to have the audience boil some water and make some tea, or some other warm beverage, in concert with the two on-air personalities, Amirkhanian and Law. Unlike some other program in the Radio Event series, there is nothing preventing current radiOM.org listeners from joining in this interactive experience despite the span of years that separate the original broadcast from the current day. So go to your stoves and enjoy the timeless comfort of listening to the radio while enjoying a good cup of tea.
