The Five Minute Hour

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 1500-1700 27.05.11

our first review

The bleeping of texts throughout this episode was part of Vile's campaign to encourage live listeners to text in their reviews of the shows.

This was the most positive one.

"I have been told to switch off the radio now, or else one of my colleagues is going to break my legs and he has described it as a "very, very strange listening experience."

Also features a new, retitled version of John Cage's classic 4 mins 33, now scored for two radio presenters, a studio and audience.
