In the RSI Archives (local public service broadcasting company), we identified different genres (news, theatre, sport), most illustrative for different decades of radio broadcasting (1940s, 1950s, and 1960s). While researching we aimed at finding unique and attractive programs that could be engaging to listen. The track had to be engaging, interesting to listen from any moment, and not overwhelmingly long (about 3 minutes maximum).
As the technical capacity of the wireless headphones allowed to upload only three tracks, we selected three decades for the event.
For the “Radio Time Machine
” it has been proposed to listen to the following three radio tracks:
- Track 1 – 1940, fragments of a palimpsest
with time signal, a news bulletin with news
about the Second World War and some songs
of the Radiant Orchestra.
- Track 2 – 1959, Dialectal Theatre: Comedy
La Tenca dal Carlin.
- Track 3 – 1964, Radio chronicle of the match
of Switzerland-Italy football, ended 3-1 for Italy.
