This is a copy and paste from an e-mail received earlier (full details on the Black Dog website). Andy Abbott, one of the organisers, is an all-round force for good: he was the chap that booked the first performance of Twelve Tapes at Gallery II in Bradford. In his own words:
DIY art collective Black Dogs are asking for submissions of 3-minute (max) long audio pieces to become part of a 16-hour long ‘radio broadcast’ in the ‘Handmade in Bradford’ unit (Bradford) last weekend of May. The space in which the recordings will be played is a former Virgin Megastore/Zavvi and we will be playing back the audio as if it were the In Store radio over the course of the weekend. We welcome a range of submissions including songs/music, field recordings, interviews, plays, spoken word and so forth responding to the theme of Commercial Break. Original work authored by the submitter or non-copyrighted material is preferred. Audio should be sent as an mp3 file to Black Dogs blackdogsleeds [at] yahoo.com by 5pm Monday May 7th.
