[Nettime-nl] [Mercurio] Radio Oltranzista {AT} Weerwoord festival 2008 (Modified by Geert Lovink)

Hello People!

This email is to bring  to your knowledge that this week, at Friday the
25th of January, we will start a live radio transmission from De Balie,
cultural center in Amsterdam.

The transmission, called Radio
Oltranzista, is embedded  in the Weerword festival, a 7
days literary festival that will encompass for a week the whole
activity of Leidseplein cultural poles. Theater, Literature, Poetry,
Music, Cinema... A huge section of which will be echoed everyday
inside our programs from 17:00 to 20:00.

Take your time to see the program of the whole festival at www.weerwordfestival.nl

Radio will be available in FM in central Amsterdam, on 105.6 FM, via
stream, up on http://radio.dyne.org:8000/oltranzista.mp3
and in
archived format via our website,  www.radioltranzista.net

All our programming from the studio in de Balie is free entrance  from
17:00 to 24:00.
And you  can call in transmission with phone/skype/sms/ to intervene
into the flow of the discussions and ask questions to our  guests.

Every live transmission will be cheered up by the presence of the
Oltranzist Orchestra, a moving, fluid, improvisational unity of
splinters, clustered around Fausto Casara and Hansko Visser.

Here are some highlights of our program for the 7 days of live broadcast and for the automatic night shows, that we hope are going to catch your curiosity. You will find a complete updated program on our web site (www.radioltranzista.net)

final jam of radio-activity.

31 -- Thursday

Being the last day of the festival and also our last day we keep it
fluid, at least as fluid as usual. From the Bellevue Grote Zaal we
will broadcast live "De Dunne Komrij" and close the day with Remo
Remotti and the Radio Oltranzista All-Stars.

Our lineup will be full of surprises, but I still have to mention that
the improvised propaganda devices will be triggered by the will-on-the-
trigger of Sagi Grooner and the night program is curated by Evan Odd
in a sparkling way.

We will be glad to see you with us and to feel your presence behind
the many radios and the many computers that can be set to listen our

We will also treasure any sound or vibration you might send us in
good faith and sharing spirit.
