A Different Nature on 04/22/13
In 1998, Richard Francis, the original host of A Different Nature, organized a 24-hour radio marathon on KBOO, during which we played nothing but sounds from the natural world. It was the first time that several of the current members of DNC worked together. [DNC=Different Nature Collective -not to be confused with the Democratic National Committee] Now fifteen years later [sans Richard] we will present 12-hours of uninterupted sounds from the natural world. KBOO's special Earth Day broadcast actually commences at 7:00 AM on Monday, April 22nd with 12-hours of news & public affairs programming surrounding environmental issues. Then, at 7:00 PM, the voices will stop ---no human-made sounds will go out over the air until 7:00 AM on Tuesday, April 23rd. Yes, humans did record the sounds that will be heard, and yes, humans will also be engineering the broadcast, but you get the picture. Listen and celebrate Earth's intricate soundprint.
