103.3 Asheville FM

The 2022 Black Mountain College Radio Artists have been selected by BMCM+AC, AshevilleFM, and Make Noise for a series of innovative works for the radio inspired by the experimental spirit of BMC artists. This year’s open call for artists expanded beyond Western NC and was open to all.

BMC Radio Artists’ work will be featured in various programs on Asheville FM with an exclusive interview kicking off their featured month. At the completion of the broadcasts, a culminating listening session will be held at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center to celebrate the work of the six radio artists: Casey Edwards, Erika Funke, Kamikaze Jones, Brett Naucke, Joo Won Park, Jonah Rosenburg, and charles theonia.

Erika Funke is Senior Arts Producer at WVIA Public Radio/TV in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. She received a fellowship from the PA Council on the Arts to create an audio theater piece that was performed with professional actors and live sound effects before an audience and later broadcast. Erika has produced a number of radio documentaries on the anthracite coal region.

One of the most important themes in M.C. Richards’s writing and living is the fundamental importance of listening – at the deepest level – to each other and to the world. She actually uses radio as an image in one poem to express our human “ear-ness”. Marienleben: The Life of Mary… Mary Caroline explores that metaphor through one of her favorite works of music, Paul Hindemith’s Das Marienleben – that she listened to on the radio.
