    Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station which aims to promote the medium of radio as an art form and to encourage experimental approaches to making radio that are not catered for by mainstream stations. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station’s broadcast schedule includes live shows, pre-recorded features and a series of specially commissioned ‘live-to-air’ performances. The majority of the programmes are made up of selections submitted to an annual international open call for sound and radio works. Examples of the wide range of broadcasts in previous years can be heard via Radiophrenia 2015, Radiophrenia 2016 and Radiophrenia 2017; Radiophrenia 2019, which will take place in May 2019, is now open for submissions. There is also Broader Casting, a short video which documents the creative process of community groups who are usually excluded from radio, making sound pieces for the festival.

    The idea that the expressive traditions of all local and ethnic cultures should be equally valued was at the heart of musicologist Alan Lomax’s career.

Gems include The New Orleans Jazz Interviews (1949), the England and Wales folk songs (1951-1958), blues artist Big Bill Broonzy, Bessie Jones, and Caribbean 1962, just when the British West Indies were on the verge of independence. There are also three YouTube channels: The Alan Lomax Archive, which offers video clips from Lomax’s “American Patchwork” fieldwork (1978-1983), thus far including Mississippi Delta and Hill Country, Appalachia, New Orleans, Cajun Louisiana, Johns Island, SC; The Global Jukebox Channel with 600 recorded language examples collected by Lomax for Parlametrics, his study of speaking style, and the Cultural Equity Channel set up to provide Grenadians at home and in the Diaspora with an interactive online resource for Grenadian folkways and an outlet for cultural feedback.

    This site offers a vast amount of information about broadcasting history, covering (despite the name) television and radio, mainly in the USA and Canada but also venturing as far afield as the UK and Australia. Of particular value to researchers are the wide range of digitised, searchable periodicals and journals which, although the main focus of the site is on the early days of broadcasting also stretch as far as the 21st century. NB. It is not clear to what degree rights have been cleared for some of the material on this site. David Gleason, who maintains the site, operates on a basis of ‘if the owner of the material complains I will take it down’ - rather than seeking permission beforehand.

    This entertaining and informative site attempts to categorise, index and contextualise tropes - storytelling devices or conventions - as they appear in television programmes, films, games, music, literature, and other media. There are four main indexes: Genre Tropes, Media Tropes, Narrative Tropes and Topical Tropes. Each of these main headings is further subdivided so that under the Narrative Trope heading, for example, one can explore Characters, Conflict, Motifs Settings etc., down to a microscopic level of detail. The site began in 2004, primarily focusing on the television series ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’. Since then it has vastly expanded its scope to cover most types of media. Users can explore by series or trope. Each series entry features a list of tropes associated with that series, whereas users exploring by trope (British Teeth, for example) will find a list of that trope’s appearance in television, film, literature etc. Although the approach is often humorous the site represents an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring or analysing the building blocks of storytelling and narrative construction, in any medium, but particularly television.
