Sled Island & Byta Announce First of Tête-à-Têtes Series: Lockdown Radio


The Sled Island Music & Arts Festival and Byta, the platform for sending digital audio files and streams, are proud to announce the first in a regular series of free, online conversations about the changing landscape of music called Tête-à-Têtes. The series debuted December 1 at noon MST with Lockdown Radio: a conversation with Radio Alhara about new internet radio in a time of restricted movement.


In a time of unprecedented restricted movement, where the global community is isolated, but brought together by a universal concern, it is no surprise that internet radio is experiencing a modern day renaissance. With three of Radio Alhara's founders living in the occupied and landlocked West Bank, they are uniquely situated to understand and discuss the role and importance of internet radio, particularly in times of geographic isolation.
