On 17th of January many radio stations in Europe celebrate Art’s Birthday. In 2016 Kunstradio invited an illustrious group of performers to their beautiful old broadcast hall to celebrate the occasion. Mobile Radio took part in Vienna for the second time after 2007. The videos below show excerpts of performances by Anna Friz, Ralf Wendt and us, who continued with an improvised quartet just before midnight that was shared via EBU satellite with a dozen other participating radio stations. Together with ORF producer Elisabeth Zimmermann this also meant that all five curators of the forthcoming International Radio Art Festival Radio Revolten could get together to plan the giant event ahead.
