Radio23.org emerges April 23rd as a new breed of community radio
station. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, but with broadcasters
covering the globe, Radio23 is a non-commercial, freeform radio
station dedicated to providing an international platform for
innovative, creative home broadcasters.

With the launch of our first channel, anyone with high-speed internet
can experience underground music and culture from all parts of the
globe, created by more than five dozen weekly live broadcasters.
Every two hours, a new live broadcaster takes the reigns from a
distant land and offers a view of what's happening in their creative
community.

Since underground broadcasting and unknown music are some of our
specialties, Radio23 has partnered with Radioactivity.fm and WFMU's
Free Music Archive to ensure that, although dynamic DIY content may
sometimes be obscure, our listeners will not only find new music, but
easily connect to the artists they hear.

The live broadcast & launch celebration starts at 5pm, April 23rd, 2009:

***all times Brooklyn, NYC -> GMT -5

5:00PM
DJ Sotusura broadcasts every week on R23 from Amman, Jordan ARCHIVE

6:30PM
DJ Thanksgiving Brown broadcasts live from San Francisco, California.

LAUNCH PARTY at The Bell House
7:30pm doors, 8:00pm show
149 7th St. in Brooklyn, New York

With performances (in order) by:

Grade 13
Grade 13 is a group of teenage girls from New York who - through the
viBeSongMakers program and under the direction of Young People's Katie
Eastburn - met last August to write and record a collection of
original songs in collaboration with professional musicians. The
resulting album, "Sidewalk Chalk," was recently released with the
girls, ranging in age from 15 to 18. They wrote all the songs for
Sidewalk Chalk themselves, tackling themes of self-acceptance,
poverty, sexual identity, broken families and the pain and confusion
of young love with insight and playfulness, unflinching honesty and at
times a surprising sense of maturity. (vimeo)

Nine 11 Thesarus is a group of middle schoolers who broadcast every
week on R23 from IS 291 in Bushwick, Brooklyn. They are the newest
group formed through the Representing NYC program, presenting
Brooklyn's most fearsome and irreverent rap.

Tiny Toones (1st NYC appearance) from Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Tiny Toones Cambodia uses breakdancing, Hip-Hop music, and the
contemporary arts as creative tools to empower the youth of Cambodia
to live healthier lives free of HIV and drugs, build a more promising
future by furthering their educational opportunities, and become
positive role models for their community. Seven of the peer mentors of
Tiny Toones, former street kids who have matured into the role models
of the program, will be performing a breakdancing routine and several
of their songs.

Blast Off!!!
Blast Off!!! improvises music for brain melting and feet dancing.

GOD
GOD could be compared to folks like AMM or the Improvised Music From
Japan crew, due to the meticulous attention paid to the construction
of even the most minute sounds in their pieces. Bryan Eubanks and Leif
Sundstrom have been playing music together for more than a decade;
though they're both now in NYC, they're veteran kingpins in Portland,
Oregon's vibrant experimental music & arts scene.

Alexis O'Hara
Alexis O'Hara is a trilingual performance artist with a penchant for
experimentation: Producing street theatre in Toronto, making dirty
movies in Vancouver, frying her ass for the art-hungry hordes in
Geneva, and singing in a myriad of musical projects from jazz combos,
to all-girl punk outfits and improv electronic jam collectives. (maple
music)
Roberto C. Lange + David Ellis
Over the past couple of years, Roberto has teamed up with visual and
sound artist David Ellis to compose his kinetic sculpture creations -
the most recent, a 25-foot catfish with paint cans for teeth and fly
swatters for taste buds. The catfish is skinned with 12" LP records
and beat boxes. Currently, Roberto is working with prolific music
producer Guillermo Scott Herren (Prefuse 73), helping to produce and
create a new palate of sounds for the forthcoming Prefuse 73 album.
(vimeo)

Ellis' work continues to interpret music and sound. His paintings are
often recorded in a form of digital time-lapse animation Ellis calls
"motion painting." Like jazz, these works provide Ellis with an
opportunity to combine ideas with collaborators or work solo within a
form that promotes improvisation and spontaneity. For a recent
commission the artist painted a truck from sunup to sundown over five
consecutive days. Ellis often stages events when exhibiting his motion
paintings, inviting musicians, performers, and sound artists to
interpret the work live. His motion painting, Paint on Trucks in a
World in Need of Love was recently exhibited at MoMA.

Prefuse 73
(aka: Guillermo Scott Herren) is nothing if not proven. It's hard to
think of a name that carries as much weight in both hip-hop and avant-
rock circles as Prefuse 73, who in the past year alone has been asked
to remix TV On The Radio, Pelican, BLK JKS and Cornelius, not to
mention his early collaborations with School of Seven Bells and
Battles. These interactions have clearly helped to shape the evolving
Prefuse 73 sonic aesthetic, which has expanded to include Herren's
twisted visions of prog-rock, "machine funk" and global psychedelia.
From Delarosa & Asora to Savath & Savalas, through to Prefuse 73 and
Diamond Watch Wrists, there's no way to underestimate the reach of
Guillermo Scott Herren's influence - and 2009 appears to be a
significant culmination of the artist's most resounding material.

DJ Marty McSorley: might just be the best DJ at WFMU
