Living Live: Radio Underground & Beyond

Conversation, anecdotes, memories, tales of horror and wonder, and specially selected samples from a diverse group of New York Web radio producers, DJs, and activists recorded Sept. 3, 2014, featuring Delphine Blue (Shocking Blue: East Village Radio, WBAI-FM/Pacifica Radio), Michael Caputo (Voices Inside My Head: KnowWave), Ted Shumaker (Gay Beach/EVR, Viva Radio, American Apparel), Dap (Chillin' Island: East Village Radio/KnowWave), and Tom Roe (Artistic Director, Wave Farm, free103point9, WGXC-FM) hosted by Jeannie Hopper (Liquid Sound Lounge: Clocktower Radio, WBAI-FM/Pacifica Radio) alongside artist Peter Coffin and Clocktower Radio's Program Director David Weinstein.

This program, and the accompanying reception and streamcast, was produced at Red Bull Studios New York as part of Clocktower Radio's summer long 2014 Living Live streamcast and viewing party produced in partnership with artist Peter Coffin who, along with Clocktower director Alanna Heiss, envisioned a radio component to his exhibition, Living, in this space.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart.

NB: Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including,, and Art International Radio.

Living Live, A Radio Exhibition


A 6-part radio series designed to accompany the summer 2014 exhibition by the artist Peter Coffin entitled Living, on view at Red Bull Studios New York. The series underscores themes of the exhibit--such as psychedelia and film soundtracks--and includes a strong radio culture component which is a passion of the artist. Conceived and curated by Coffin, Clocktower Director Alanna Heiss, and the Clocktower Radio crew, the series aired live from Red Bull Studios throughout the summer of 2014 as the space was transformed into a broadcast and viewing party.
