Big Ears CD
Designed by Sonic Arts Network

Two pairs of ears flapping in the wind, meticulously organised chaos, accidents, childish antics, sharply swinging moods and a totally unpredictable playlist were the key features of the Big Ears radio show, broadcast by the Sonic Arts Network on London’s Resonance 104.4 FM between March 2003 and December 2004. Mixing trite and tested formats for presenting a radio show with a host of haphazard influences from Fillipo Marinetti to Britney Spears, the Big Ears presenters regularly both delighted and disgusted their audience as they attempted to broadcast a contemporary show within the somewhat dated principles of Charles Fitzgerald’s legendary 1931 manifesto of broadcasting. The CD publication documents the results of their endeavours and assesses the relevance of the manifesto for the contemporary broadcaster.
