On February 15th, I ventured out with my portable AM radio ice hut studio to broadcast all of the fun at North Bay’s Ice Follies 2014.
Want to know how a piano listens to itself?
Sound artist and Governor General Award winner Gordon Monahan has strung wires between a camper trailer and a piano 200 feet away. Take a listen to my short doc on Gordon’s installation.
What is hyperlocal Radio? Well, it is a radio broadcast that uses a low power transmitter. But where it lacks in power and range, it makes up in radio fun because the broadcast is designed especially for you and your community.
This February, BigFish AM has been broadcasting the stories of the folks in the Callander Bay Ice village. This is the community that begins to develop the moment the ice on Lake Nipissing starts to forms.
BigFish AM allows you to share in the experiences of the droves of people who take to the ice every weekend of the fishing season. Hear about their greatest fishing moments, or their scariest time on the ice, and learn from them how to stay warm in this harsh Northern Ontario winter.
BigFish AM supports local businesses and also performs a public service by offering possible listeners information about healthy fishing and ice prudence.

Can you think of a better place for a storytelling festival than Newfoundland? October 25 to November 3, 2013. The weather was certainly as dramatic as the stories. Wind, rain, snow, more wind (from a different direction) oh! Is that the sun? Nope. In come the flurries…But the hospitality was as warm as a well made fire in a wood burning stove.
Hear great storytelling from Gary Green, Harry Ingram, Robert Seven Crows Bordon (PQ), and Jennifer Ferris (BC). Music by Jean Hewson and Christina Smith, Emelia Bartellas and Aaron Collis, and Kelly Russell.
