M'aidez! Mayday!


Mayday! Mayday!, the international distress call, comes from the french m'aidez ("help me") but it also speaks to a history radical and revolutionary radio practices from seizing the airwaves to pirate radio broadcasts.

During this workshop, we built FM radio transmitter out of Raspbery Pis, then using communiques, radio scripts and other transcripts from the MayDay Rooms archive and beyond to create an audio piece to broadcast on the the FM dial.

This event was organised in conjunction with the Antiuniversity Now Festival. For the full program see www.antiuniversity.org.
