Bringing the sounds and voices of Roath to life, working in conjunction with the radio students at the Atruim University of South Wales. Programming will also be broadcast hyper-locally as 98.1FM. Programmes from local schools , community groups, a nightly soap, night time walks, conversations and interviews, poetry, music from local bands and sounds of the festival can all be heard. Specially commissioned as the radio artist for this year, Sam Hasler and Becca Thomas will be composing a short series of radio shows that discuss and elaborate from regular night walks through Roath and the surrounding areas. Taking cues from late night radio rambling and looking at the strange ways that spaces in the city are used and occupied at night, the shows will blend fiction, conversation and field recordings.

Listen to Becca Thomas and Samuel Hasler as they enter into the weird and intangible world of late night radio to present their research gathered on nightwalks through Roath and its surrounds.
Listen late at night when radio is strange, imperfect, lolling, rambling, confused, drunk, and where we run out of things to say.
Listen to these two pathetic losers, these two wretched souls babbling on about the night time, clichés, stories, Roath, love, filth, work, walking and whatever comes to them in the middle of the night after a few bottles…
Fall asleep with these weirdos in your ears.
Between Midnight and 3am on Thursday 17th, Sunday 20th and Tuesday 22nd.
