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.

Before admitting oneself to most hospitals, a seat in the waiting room is obligatory. But something unusual prevails here.

Hospital (Day 070) is presented as a grand tour through an experimental lab site where diagnosing urban malaise is a daily concern.

You study the notice board as you wait for your number to be called, reacting to the slew of lo-fi HTML pleasantries and experiments – waiting room pastimes?

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?
