The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Resonance FM

Quite randomly I found out about Resonance 104.4 fm which describes itself as "the world's first radio art station." I have not listened to any programmes yet but it sounds promising - here is some more of the blurb from the website FAQ:

"Its brief? To provide a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting. Resonance 104.4 fm features programmes made by musicians, artists and critics who represent the diversity of London’s arts scenes, with regular weekly contributions from nearly two hundred musicians, artists, thinkers, critics, activists and instigators; plus numerous unique broadcasts by artists on the weekday “Clear Spot”."

It may be a little London-centric but it may open up doors to new avenues? You can find Resonance FM online at http://resonancefm.com/ where you can listen to the radio, subscribe to their email newsletter and find out what's on.

I listened for a bit - a cacophony of modified bird song from atop the ICA - challenging stuff. ;)

As an engineer and editor for Resonance, I have to add that the ICA birdsong was an event. And as such, a one-off. Live, scheduled programming is on between midday and midnight. And a cursory glance of the website will point you in the direction of whatever you may like. The scheduling is very varied so the best suggestion I can make is a) tune in and wait for something you like, or b) look up a show, and follow it in its regular slot. Oh, and if you like anything, please donate. The vast majority of staff are volunteers and we are run by a charity.
