Podcast Title: “Hospital Radio”
Description: An application of parody across the vast range of broadcast genres and formats; this podcast mixes into a string of one-minute-and-under segments, all styles of original tracks from the Day For Night catalogue into a continuous radio epilogue.

A hidden camera with a roving wiretap on local cellular phone bands. An RX paypoint outside the front lobby dispenses mental-health prescriptions to those suffering from urban malaise. A display of terminals appears to be generating phonetic wordplay – or is it random nonsense?
