LA Weekly Five Artsy Things To Do This Week Aug. 8, 2012
Radio on the telephone Artist Rob Faucette first heard the phrase "Amy radio" from a guy he met in northern Vermont. It was slang for "A.M.," the guy told him. That gave Faucette the idea for Amy Radio, a series of radio shows he first produced for a station in Vienna. The songs, ads, sound effects and narratives that made up the series borrowed the nostalgic, quaint tone of latenight radio or variety shows à la Prairie Home Companion (Faucette produced some terribly cliche cowboy ballads). Starting this week, 323 Projects, which is an answering service and not a place, will feature a new Amy episode daily. The whole thing's delightfully archaic: calling a land line to listen to the radio. Through Aug. 31. (323) 8434652 or (323) TIEINLA, 323projects.com.
