WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to present a new season of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts.
In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, current Director of the FMA, spoke with Jacob Nathan about a long-running art and performance space called AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island, where he serves as the Live Arts Director, setting up shows, doing audio recordings, and helping artists find space to perform. AS220 has been around since 1985 and boasts a long and storied past - and a promising future.
AS220 is one of many FMA curators. You can listen to their mixes at the AS220 curator page.

The year ending can be melancholic—the passing of time, the memories, the promise of the future, bleak weather. It’s not quahogging season any more kiddos, you better have a space heater in your houseboat. If you are fretting, AS220 is here to help with this Winter Sampler of some of the warmest acts to have played within our hallowed walls. It’s suggested that you listen to this Winter Sampler under a comforter that you have fashioned into a childlike fort while drinking hot cocoa with a peppermint stick stirrer. If these items aren’t available to you just close your eyes, listen to the sonic wonder, and let your imagination run buckwild and free. This is the final sampler of 2013, so now you can download the complete set of them and feel one with the Rhode Island music scene.
