Wild creatures take over the airwaves on April 22, 2017, when Vancouver Co-operative Radio Invites listeners to Celebrate Earth Day with a 24-hour soundscape from a Saturna Island wetland. For the entire day, the airwaves will be turned over to the voices of creatures—frogs, birds, insects and more—for this exercise in “slow radio.” The Wetland broadcast will be the longest uninterrupted radio program in Canadian history.
If you are in the Vancouver area, tune in at 100.5 FM from 4 am (PDT) on Saturday, April 22 to 7 am (PDT) on Sunday, April 23. Listeners elsewhere can visit wetlandproject.com to check for participating radio stations in their area or to stream the broadcast online beginning at 7 am (EDT)/11 am (UTC).
