New Brighton Digital Festival event explores the future of radio
The event, part of Brighton Digital Festival 2015, explored the way new digital technologies are opening up opportunities in broadcasting and communication. From spoken word and podcasting, to art installations and music, the day featured presentations and panel discussions, as well as a live video interview with San Francisco based digital audio tour firm Detour.
As our host for the day Chris T-T said, in our increasingly busy and saturated lives, radio as a media channel still has huge potential because “…you don’t have to look at a screen to consume it”.
The entire event was live-streamed by totallyradio and you can listen to it again at https://totallyradio.com/shows/radio-future-sounds or view the audience response at #RadioFS.
