Radio Survivor

We cel­e­brat­ed Inter­na­tion­al Women’s Day by record­ing a fas­ci­nat­ing inter­view about women’s radio his­to­ry with Uni­ver­si­ty of Louisville Pro­fes­sor of His­to­ry Chris­tine Ehrick.

Author of Radio and the Gen­dered Sound­scape: Women and Broad­cast­ing in Argenti­na and Uruguay, 1930 – 1950, Ehrick schools us on the hid­den his­to­ry of a pio­neer­ing women’s radio sta­tion in Uruguay. Found­ed in 1935, Radio Femeni­na quick­ly became a hotbed for fem­i­nist and activist pro­gram­ming, beam­ing its sig­nal from Mon­te­v­ideo and across the riv­er into Argenti­na. Ehrick pro­vides con­text for the station’s ori­gins and dis­cuss­es how it func­tioned dur­ing some tumul­tuous polit­i­cal peri­ods in the region.
