Radio is Dead, a creative radio collective, is doing a low power fm broadcast in Parc de Portugais tomorrow, April 30th, from 1pm – 5pm. The broadcast is part of a one day festival called Lire MTL that celebrates literature, the literary imagination and inspiration. People will be reading writings about the Plateau and my friend Jess and I will be reading a piece about our time as teenagers hanging out in that neighborhood.
So come on over to the park (on St. Laurent Blvd., corner of Marie-Anne) to listen and watch while pirate radio is made! You can bring along a portable radio to tune in to the broadcast or you can surely share someone else’s radio on site. The weather looks like it’ll cooperate (high of 16 degrees and sunny) so the people watching alone will sure to be good cuz Montrealers like to bare skin at the first sign of fair weather.
