BAI to celebrate all things radio in Dublin

The BAI Building at Warrington Place in Dublin is opening up for a Culture Night, to celebrate all things audio and radio.

There’ll be a Pop Up Museum full of classic broadcasting memorabilia from the Hurdy Gurdy Museum in Howth, including radio sets dating back to the turn of the 20th century.

Its curator Pat Herbert has been collecting radio sets since the 1950’s and will share some of his radio sets inspired by the French resistance of WW2 to the first FM Radio set in Ireland.

The evening will also play host to Sounds Alive, a one-hour ticketed event from 7pm, hosted by documentary maker Julien Clancy.

Audiences will be invited into a darkened room for an evening of curated sound stories from the radio, the internet and beyond, taking a trip back in time to explore the sound archives of the National Folklore Collection.

Sound Archivist Anna Bale and other special guests will be there, helping to celebrate some of Ireland’s earliest sound stories.

Tickets from the BAI via or by telephone: 01-6441200.
