Other information
Claudia Wegener (alias, radio continental drift) is a listener with a bag and an ear for the ways how an environment becomes audible in languages, in spoken words, in conversations. The preferred means of broad-casting her (more and less) audible writings and ‘dramatic’ field recordings are radio waves. These preferences have drawn her more and more into initiating and joining public sound and radio work such as, since spring 2007, the NO-GO-ZONES audio radio project (jointly with Terry Humphrey); and since October 2008, the DURBAN SINGS audio media and oral history project (jointly with Molefi Ndlovu); both collective audio radio projects developing slow broadcast and radio inter-action between listeners, or in other words, making air-space for and with radio communities.

Radio Continental Drift (RCD)
A broad casting house in the bag of a drifter
Out to here unheard voices.
A branch of the growing networks of sound workers,
Audio artists, radio communities, and the street corner academies of listening and broadcasting
Around the world.
Radio is happening
When people linger and 'loiter' in public places
The air is free!
