Silent Barn



Pursuant to a Clocktower Radio's field trip the night before to Queens' Silent Barn, Joe Ahearn, one of the venue's organizers, comes in to talk to Will Corwin about what exactly he's doing out there in the edgy edges of Ridgewood, the only New York neighborhood to officially change boroughs, in a late-70s effort to dissociate itself from its unruly, troublesome neighbor, Bushwick. Silent Barn is not just a music venue, it's also a housing complex--a social condenser, if you will. Will and Joe talk about the advantages of having dozens of microphones in your residence and expanding the Barn concept all the way out to Broadway Junction (31 minutes).

RADIO SERIES

This is a collaborative community project featuring an ever-expanding collection of short audio portraits of organizations, spaces, and activities as described by the people who manage them. The goal of Radio Profiles is to provide information, generate interest, and expand audiences for New York City culture. Radio Profiles is a project of AIR - with archives from WPS1 - and originally developed in association with The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, BOMB Magazine, and The Film-Makers' Cooperative. We welcome all to participate. Cultural groups can email us to set up a recording session.
