One year ago (OK, really like one year and four months), online radio station Radio Artifact was launched by Northside brewery/music venue Urban Artifact, featuring unique, community-minded programming that, like the bookings at UA, is heavy on music created by locals. Since its launch, the station has joined the Cincinnati Public Radio family, becoming part of the organization’s digital radio platform (you can find it on the HD2 station of 91.7 FM, making it a sister channel of WVXU).
This Friday (Nov. 2), the venue is hosting a birthday celebration for Radio Artifact featuring many of the on-air personalities from the channel. The show hosts will chat on stage about their different programs and, since many of the hosts are also musicians, the musical entertainment for the night will be provided by local bands that include Radio Artifact DJs amongst their members.
The music lineup includes performances from Go Go Buffalo, The Phasmids, Phasmonaut, Venicia & the Shadow People, Hot Diggity Daffodil and Fritz Pape, who hosts the ambient and drone music program The Hum every Wednesday at 10 p.m. There will also be Radio Artifact t-shirts and other merchandise available.
