Jersey City–based community radio station WFMU is bringing together big names for a daylong conference to discuss the future of radio, which will double as a fundraiser for the station. The conference is in NYC Oct. 20 and makes up the bulk of the station’s second annual RadioVision Festival, which also encompasses a screening of the Bob Fass documentary Radio Unnameable the night before. The events are separately ticketed: The Oct. 19 film screening will cost $5, and tickets will be available at the door. Tickets to the conference are $40 for students and artists and $80 for the general public.
Participants in this year’s conference will include Joe Richman of Radio Diaries, Roman Mars of 99% Invisible, Glynn Washington of Snap Judgement and Jesse Thorn of Maximum Fun, among others. Unlike last year’s festival, this one will be held separately from WFMU’s annual Record Fair, another station fundraiser, which will occur Nov. 2–4 in NYC.
