Celebrate nine years with free103point9 this March: free103point9 started on March 7, 1997 with a show at a loft near the second L stop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with DJ Singe, I-Sound, DJ Matt Mikas, and others.

For nine years, free103point9 has strived to promote transmission artists, and those who wish to use radio in a creative way, as well as serving as a community resource for New York. Our “Radio Lab” education program has enabled others, and free103point9 Online Radio and our extensive online Audio Archives reach around the world.

We urge everyone to celebrate nine years of free103point9 by adding an event of your own to our Schedule web page, and spread the word about whatever activism, sound art, or performance you are working on:

((((( ADD YOUR EVENT )))))

((((( ADD YOUR SOUND ))))) Send CD, LPs for airplay on free103point9 Online Radio to: freee103point9 Wave Farm, 5662 Route 23, Acra, NY 12405

((((( AIRtime Residencies at free103point9 Wave Farm ))))) AIRtime residencies provide a valuable space for artists to pursue new transmission works with access to equipment and technical support, and conduct important research about the genre using free103point9’s resource library. Residencies are available by application. Approximately ten artists are selected each season. Residents are provided with meals and train travel or gasoline reimbursement from New York City (or comparable distances.)

Projects worked on during AIRtime residencies are considered for possible release through free103point9’s Dispatch Series. Selected projects are presented in conjunction with free103point9’s exhibition and presentation program PETS. Artists-in-residence also interact with free103point9 Online Radio, presenting live on-air programming during their stay when appropriate.

Facilities and Environment

Residents are housed in a private cabin with WiFi access, on free103point9’s Wave Farm. The cabin is situated across from the residency of Program Directors Galen Joseph-Hunter and Tom Roe where meals are provided. Equipment, studio space, and reading and listening libraries are also located here during the 2006 program. (AIRtime will move to a dedicated study center and residency facility opening summer 2007.)

Equipment and Resources

Residents have access to a variety of transmission equipment (transmitters, radios, CBs, walkie-talkies, etc) and analog and digital recording gear. The library contains hundreds of publications concerning television, radio, media art practice and theory, as well as audio and video resources.
