KCHUNG Radio is taking over the Telfair Museums’ airwaves this Spring! KCHUNG is a cooperative broadcast platform based in Chinatown, Los Angeles. Placing a premium on ease of participation from as wide a community as possible, KCHUNG views broadcasting as an ideal form for gathering and amplifying a multitude of diverse voices and viewpoints.
KCHUNG will create event programming and temporary site-specific interventions throughout the museum—including collaborations with museum staff, volunteers, and local community through workshops, symposia, and collaboratively-produced broadcasts of interviews, music, news, and stories. So stay tuned! Programming will include “lunchtime discos” in the Jepson atrium, “whisper reports” live in the galleries, community programming, and a live broadcast station and mobile broadcast unit that will float outside the museum and around Savannah!
Listen live onsite at AM1630 or stream the programs online!
