Hörspiel/USA: 1981 – 1992

The former page features the cover for the KPFA Folio when the first series of plays and other acoustial works from German radio were translated and broadcast. The date was October 1984, twenty seven years ago. The Bay Area Radio Drama productions are still in our archives and we hope in this new age of reaching out, radio productions such as these may now have a new audience. The German word for ‘bridge’ is Die Brücke and it represented an acoustical alliance between San Francisco and German radio art. Contemporary American radio art barely exists, but it may now find opportunity to create and distribute for a new world-wide audience. It may have to go the way of the independent-lensed film makers for eventual public and artistic support, but with the expanding listening territory, that opportunity is at hand.
