Wheel Of The Year - Fire Festivals

We are uniquely - a radio art and experimental station in rural England. We do not aspire to being an urban, masculine, electronic or highbrow project. We seek instead to find new ways to listen to rural life.

We want to note the changes of the season by celebrating the four festivals of :-

The Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle of seasonal festivals. It consists of either four or eight festivals: either the solstices and equinoxes, known as the "quarter days", or the four midpoints between, known as the "cross quarter days". Observing the cycle of the seasons has been important to many people, both ancient and modern.


Lunar time

It's interesting the way time can stretch and shrink. If you find that a programme starts a bit later than scheduled, it could well be that the presenter was delayed by the glimpse of a badger or a kingfisher on the stroll up to the studio. In other words Soundart runs on deep-nature-cylical time, rather than Victorian-railway-linear time. Not typical of a radio station we know, but we quite like it this way.
