About NRRF B Radio:

B Radio: a series of radio shows mashing b-list genres with radio art. Each B Radio episode features a theme to structure the improvisational nature of the shows, though tangents are frequent and encouraged. It’s live radio, streamed, with special guests and live audience. The core group of performers play live instruments and electronics, sample wildly, speculate broadly, and have been known to sing. NRRF is a collaborative effort to make unlicensed neighborhood radio art. For this Chicago iteration, the core group of noisemakers consists of Jonny Farrow, Anna Friz, Steve Germana, Jeff Kolar, Peter Speer, with Sarah Knudtson (documentation and props wrangling). Earlier projects include street radio in Montreal (2001), the NRRF Radio Roadshow (2004), and Radio Free Parkdale in Toronto (2005-2007).



This is from the 6 hour live broadcast for Art's Birthday 2013 with Anna Friz, Jonny Farrow, Jeff Kolar and Peter Speer. In my own notes while organizing edits from this show, I named this guitarsynthfreakout.    

Another edit from the Art's Birthday radio broadcast at ESS, Experimental Sound Studios in Chicago. This is from the nearly 6 hours of less than authorized radio broadcast. Jonny and Anna on vocals and birthday instructions. For the complete show, go to free 103's archive site:
