Commissioned by PlastiCities in association with University of Sheffield, hosted at Access Space and broadcast live on digital radio on 26th June 2012, HomelandŐs latest project Analogous Frequencies posed, to an invited panel and vocal audience, the question: What are the critical potentials of radio, past and present?

The discussion, chaired by Lee Ford (BBC Radio Leeds), formed around the reflections of Sangita Basudev (Sheffield Live), Jonathan Cook (Alt Sheff), Jake Harries (FAVTR/Zero Dollar Laptop) and Professor John Mowitt (Radio: Essays in Bad Reception) on broadcast media and their complex relation to the market, the state and civil society.

The broadcast went on to address SheffieldŐs history of activism and DIY culture, pirate and community-led media along with a broader discussion around local and global media structures, focusing particularly on the political efficacy and aesthetic dimensions of radio.
