WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Dina Maccabee, a musician and scholar who headed up a project called "Song-O-Phone." The project has a home on the Free Music Archive, allowing listeners to trace the changes of the song as each artist in a series of 30 interpreted and performed the same song. A selection is below, but check the full series out at the Song-O-Phone curator page

FMA Volunteer Ethan has also made a Song-O-Phone inspired playlist, called "Phone-O-Songs." You can listen to it here!
