WRCT on the air for CMU Spring Break

March 8, 2019

CMU students are on their spring break until March 18 — does that mean WRCT is off the air?

NO! We’re still here!

Community DJs and hosts will play tunes and host WRCT’s thought-provoking programming, supplemented by tracks from WRCT’s automated library of music from around the world.

Free form radio from Forbes Avenue carries on 365 days a year on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, and streaming from this very website.

Interview with Ethan Rafal

December 14, 2015

Ethan Rafal is a San Francisco-based artist whose new book is called Shock and Awe.

Shock and Awe is a project that unfolded over the course of a twelve-year journey throughout the United States. What resulted is an autobiographical narrative that combines images, short stories, and found objects. Told from the perspective of a young adult coming of age in America in the wake of September 11th, 2001, Rafal addresses the parallels between war abroad and an increasing sense of disillusionment domestically. Rafal’s work falls within the traditions of documentary photography and American traveling artists, and the book itself is a replica of the hand bound journal that he carried with him during his journey.

I was able to speak with Ethan Rafal about the processes that drove the creation of his new book. The following segments aired on WRCT on Tuesday, November 17, 2015.
