On the 100th anniversary of the first global entertainment broadcast, online radio stations from across the world present Wireless, a 24-hr translingual radio broadcast about planetary wireless communication.
On August 27, 1920, “The crazy people on the roof” (Radio Argentina Society initiators Enrique Susini, César Guerrico, Miguel Mugica, Luis Romero and Ignacio Gómez) installed a smuggled Marconi transmitter on the rooftop terrace of the Teatro Coliseo in downtown Buenos Aires. This broadcast of Wagner’s “Parsifal” marked the first radio broadcast in Argentina and the first mass public entertainment broadcast in the world.
On August 27, 2020, Midnight to Midnight Argentina Time, Wireless explores radio pasts and futures, from technology to entertainment. Everything wireless runs on radio, radio waves are the medium of wireless internet. Through translingual dialogue, music and sound, Wireless will consider the various modalities of this evolving planetary condition--spectrum, networks, telecommunications, infrastructure, urban acrobatics, physics, entertainment and education. Each partner radio will rebroadcast the marathon stream, leading to an amplification of radio investigation, entertainment, and solidarity.
