Starting today, Public Radio WBHM 90.3 FM will air Magic City Sounds, a new project featuring the voices and sounds that make up the Magic City in brief audio segments. WBHM will air these daily fragments of life, engaging moments, and personal reflections on air throughout regular programming and on-line at MagicCitySounds.org. The station hopes that by recording these fleeting moments, they will create a living audio archive of Alabama.
“This project is very exciting because I believe everyone has a unique story, and sharing those stories allows us to build connections and learn about more about our neighbors,” says WBHM Assistant Producer Amy Sedlis. “Magic City Sounds allows us the opportunity to share real voices from real people right here in North Central Alabama.”
WBHM would like to invite the community to get involved. Details about how to record and submit a story or a particular sound can be found at MagicCitySounds.org.
“I can’t think of another project so focused on what the city sounds like,” says Michael Krall, WBHM’s Program Director. “Listeners will find these exchanges intimate, personal and informative all at the same time, and with the community’s help, we’re very excited to see what this project will become.”
